Jo and I have a standing joke about my photography. Ever since our Europe trip in 2007, I tend to take photos of clouds, trees, megalithic tombs and stones, iron age ruins, birds and landscapes. After my several trips to Ireland and Britain since 2007, she has always asked, with a cheeky smile, 'What, no houses or flowers?' So, this trip I've been taking photos I'm hope she will like.
Given that I have been in Britain for Spring, this particular blog post will showcase some of the wildflowers I have encountered during my recent walks. Most of them come from a trip to Thor's Cave with my good friend Grevel Lindop (more about this in another post). So, here's a short photo essay of wildflowers for Jo:
|Native bluebells, plus white and pink variants|
(in Grevel's front garden)
|Early Purple Orchid|
|Jack-by-the-Hedge (Garlic Mustard)|
|White Dead Nettle|
|Butter Burr (its leaves were used to wrap butter)|
By the way, if anyone can identify the two 'unknowns', please let me know.
That's it for now.
