  • Flora

    The forest of Charmes

    Here we are at the top of the hill amidst hornbeam, oak and chestnut trees. Hornbeam with its ribbed trunk is characteristic of the forests in the north of the county. In the spring before the leaves grow and we hear the churping of tits, warblers and chaffinches, is the time when many plants like violets, lungworts or barren strawberries make the most of the light to poke their heads through the undergrowth. Later on in the season, the leaves offer a pleasant and cool shade.
