Flowers on Yew are not seen in the web very often so here we go!

Growing out of limestone or so it looks to me. They may be a bit older than they look due to there being little humus until they break the rock and get to the soil above the cliff. then they take off like cash crop trees but not easy to harvest so they are here for the camera. I started off with the challenge of getting photos of Yew that has not been planted in a church yard. I got as far as them growing out of a memorial to the demise of the last ice age instead. The other thing i had to do was a second visit for the flowers as it is not easy climbing between tree trunks and rock.
