English Wild Flowers in the Spring
These are harebells, more translucent than shown
here. Dainty but hardy flowers. Grow to about
6 inches . The flower itself is about 1 inch. These
are not the woodland bluebell, but I have heard
them called the Bluebells of Scotland.
My favorite, the wild English Primrose. Grow to
less than 6 inches in height and the flower is about
3/4 inch across. They grew in wild profusion all over
the cliffs at Flamborough when I was a child. A spring
time occupation was "to go Primrosing". We'd come
home with fistsful of these delicate, pale yellow flowers.
More to come, if I can concentrate long enough.
