Flora
« on: 12:03:29, 18/05/16 »
Inspired by barewirewalkers dandelions, (and as DevonDave said we're probably all getting board with bluebells) I took my camera for a long walk and took a few photos of the different wild flowers that are now appearing in the countryside around my local area.


Hopefully some of you will add your own pictures, and please correct me if any are mis-identified, which is highly likely.

The sun is always shining.......... it's just that on most days the clouds stop us from seeing it.

Absolutely stunning photos DD. Possibly a common spotted-orchid?

Lovely pics both. Wild garlic is ramson, and that isn't solomons seal, not sure what, I might have guessed a cultivated snowdrop but someone else will know (I am in France, so no ref books to check for you).

The white snowdrop like one maybe summer snowflake according to google?

Thanks alewife & Dovegirl.  Yes alewife, that was a typo - it should be Ramsons.  I stand corrected on the Solomon's Seal too.  Having had another look at it I think you are right, it is a type of snowdrop.
Hope you're enjoying your trip to France.
