In search of wild flowers

It has always given me great pleasure to stumble upon interesting wild flowers in the countryside whilst on walks. But recently I have been purposely going on expeditions to seek out specific wild flowers, which can prove elusive. Narcissus pseudonarcissus -  the wild one possibly native to us, is rare now to sight because of intensive agriculture. In a nearby woodland I managed to successfully seek what I wanted to find.


Like jewels they peeked through the carpets of white wood anemones and dried fallen leaves. They were spread out in this way that is so hard to mimic in the garden. In marvelled silence I sat and admired them.

  1. Yeah, I have to say I have never seen anything like it and it was really special. Re the Hellebore 'Anna's Red', I dare say it's way of the best ones!
