We saw so many flowers that I have made a list to give you an idea of what you look for if you go out in the next few weeks. If you have children (and maybe even if you don't) an I-Spy or other spotter book can make a walk fun, definitely grab yourself some sort of identification book, you can borrow them free from libraries as well as buying them. Or take a picture of each flower you see (I took quite a few) and use the internet to identify them when you get home. There is charming folklore about many English plants (more of that in later posts)
So here is my walk in pictures...
And we saw a huge long list of flowers too, many of which I photographed. Including:
Stitchwort, primroses, bluebells, white deadnettle, crosswort, bugle, cuckoo pint, herb robert, red campion, dog violets, anemone, wood sorrel, dandelions, daisies, yellow archangel, lady's smock, wood spurge, gorse, forget me nots, and yellow pimpernel.
