I think that's what I know as Lenten Rose. Is it native to UK?

Nice one Fernman, I hope you found it a decent distance away from the righteous way. Enough to satisfy your adventurous spirit  :D .

All I found yesterday was 1/3 of mile of right of way (FP) that appears someone is try to scrub of the map  >:(

In the past I have spotted the occasional one well off the beaten track, but I must confess that the group in my photo were very close to the edge of the Forestry Commission car park!

Stinking hellebore is a native wild plant but it is also grown in the nursery trade.
Lenten rose is a collective name given to most cultivated hellebores.

Summer snowflake, Leucojum aestivum, seen in the Aston and Remenham areas downstream of Henley-on-Thames during my walk last Thursday. Also known as Loddon lily because it grows close to that river, a tributary of the Thames, it is a native that grows in wet riverside woods and scrub. It is nationally uncommon as a wild plant but because it is commonly cultivated it is often found growing as an escape.
Not the sharpest of photos, but it's not easy when you're kneeling with one knee in wet, black mud!

Can anyone tell me what this lovely little flower is please?


It's a blue-ish purple-y colour with a distinctive dot and stripes on it's "bottom" petal:


No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)
