Clover

The fields are full of wildflowers at the moment and there are two colours of clover to be seen – white and this pale mauve/pink variety. As a child I used to enjoy picking clover and chewing the stalks to get at the sweet tasting insides – haven’t done that for a few years.

White Rose

A lovely creamy white rose photographed today. A neighbour has a plant growing along their wall which becomes smothered in these gorgeous flowers. 

Poppies

Spring is finally here – even if it is still cold! Loved the brightness of these poppies growing in a neighbour’s garden – they cheered up my day.

Smelly Flowers……..

The wild garlic is now flowering everywhere and as you brush past the abundant leaves and flowers, the strong smell of garlic floats up from your feet! These photos were taken while walking the dog today as he delighted in jumping in the river and then running through the garlic plants!wpid-wild-garlic-4-01_wm.jpg.jpeg
