All around our garden wildlflowers make their home and they are welcome with open arms.
Here tufted vetch. One of the earliest vetches to flower and loved by bees especially Common carder bees.
Secondly globe marigold. I transferred a bit of a plant to our pond many years ago where it grows. Though it is in the nearby drains where it flourishes. It’s bright yellow petals are just like mini suns.
Thirdly lesser celendine with violets; for me the colour combination is just perfect. Violets along with primroses are my favourite spring flowers.
Fourthly the humble buttercup. While the creeping buttercup is a bit of a nuisance as a “weed” in the vegetable patch you cannot but enjoy the bright yellow flowers.
Next bluebells. Yes they are already in flower. I collected seed from a woodland not too far away and have waited five patient years for these seeds to grow enough to produce flowers. It was worth the wait.
And finally dandelions – many of which are now seed heads. But these are loved by bullfinches, goldfinches and chaffinches.
