More English flowers.
One of the delights of gracious, green, amply watered England is flowers.
Flowers in gardens.
Flowers in the wild.
Even flowers in the wastelands.
At the edge of Hyde Park in London is this wall o’ magenta. I saw this only from afar, with telephoto, so if you know what this is, testify!
Kensington Park, London. A gorgeous hawthorne in bloom.
Kensington Park hawthorne flowers, close-up.
Star-of-Bethlehem at pathside. Near Tetbury.
Bluebells in the woods, a quintessential British woodland sight. Tetbury environs.
Speedwell, or germander. Uley Bury.
Fly in dandelion.
Another ubiquitous wildling. We saw this all over, in city and in country and in town. I can’t remember the name! Red valerian? (Centranthus ruber)
Yellow composit…on train tracks.
It’s wonderful the way plants will take hold in the most difficult conditions.
Maybe today I’ll go out and collect a gallery of “American” flowers?
