More Flora from a Woodland Walk

Another walk through the Woodland produced a batch of flower images.

Cowslip (Primula veris)





Common Dog Violet (Viola riviniana)
NB. I read that it is the county flower of Lincolnshire.






Lady's  Smock (Cardamine pratensis)
or Cuckoo Flower




Marsh Marigold (Caltha palustris)
another common name Kingcups.




Lesser Celandine (Ranunculus ficaria)


Wood Anemone (Anemone nemorosa)


A flower below I can never remember the name of and have to look it up in the book.

Common Mouse-ear (Cerastium fontanum)



Wild Primrose (Primula vulgaris)




Small-flowered Crane's-bill
(Geranium pusillum)



Green Alkanet
(Pentaglottis sempervirens)



A Hybrid White bell.

I have found more of these this year in various locations than ever before.




More camera trickery.{:))

  7. Lovely pictures of wildflowers, very clear and detailed. I have quite a selection of wildflowers in my garden; Cowslip, Violets, Green Alkanet, Lesser Celandine, Primrose, Marjoram, Common Field Speedwell, Dandelion, Herb Robert. This year I bought Knapweed and Wild Carrot from my local garden centre. The Green Alkanet I have everywhere, the bumblebees love this plant especially the Common Cardars. I manage to pack quite alot plants in my small garden, my lawn is slowly disappearing:-) which means less mowing each summer:-) Also have a small pond.

  9. Lovely images, you really have a wonderful selection of wildflowers in your woodland! I noticed a whitebell a couple of days ago as well, must look more closely to see whether it's English or Spanish.
