Flowers of the Forest

These are images of flowers found currently around my woodland walk which include some open areas as well. So "of the Forest" is not strictly correct.

NB: I'm not a fan of Bagpipe music normally, give me the Band of the Royal Marines any day, but go to the below Youtube link and you will see where the term Flowers of the Forest came from:

  4. It's always good to see the colour returning to the countryside Roy, and you've captured some lovely examples here.
    I like the Whitebells, I've only seen one example (sadly trampled!) so far this year...[;o)

    Check out Greater Stitchwort (Stelaria holostea) and Bugle (Ajuga reptans)
