. . . even in the city. We had to take our middle daughter to her friend's house near Newport, for the onward journey back to University and took the opportunity of a little bit of culture and visited the Museum and Art Gallery in Cardiff. On the way back to the car, I noticed these bluebells flowering - much further forward than ours at home.
One of our local bluebells - we have very few out at all yet in our valley.
My eldest daughter and I had a lovely walk along the valley last week and I took some photos of some of the wild flowers we encountered.
Bitter Vetch growing on a hedge bank.
Cuckoo Pint also known as Lady's Smock.
Flowering Wood Rush.
A happy bankful of Anemones (Windflowers to me).
A trio of ferns unrolling.
These different sorts of fiddleheads of fern can apparently be cooked - bit like asparagus - and have good levels of Vitamin C.
These I can identify - Hart's Tongue ferns.
