Mountain Avens for Scapania
by paddyhillsbagger  24 May 2010
Having got Wood Anemone mixed up with my Mountain Avens, I eventually came across the real Mountain Avens on the hills of Burren. Many thanks to Scapania for putting me right! I did find more of the Avens on Abby Hill rather than Slievecarran but its about on both. Also came across the Spring Gentian as described on above comment so no need for the guide book. A delightful hill with stunning views in the glorious sunshine. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/927/comment/5822/
