My Monday walk this week took me through a lot of mud in search of wildflowers.  There were thousands of them (wildflowers, not mud, although there was a lot of that, too) waiting for the sunshine to warm the earth a bit more before bursting briefly into bloom.  I tramped through the mud in search of anything else, when suddenly I discovered this patch of wildflowers in full bloom.  I’ll be going back as soon as possible to check on the progress of the other flowers.  Despite the lack of flowers, it was a soul-soothing two hours.

I have no idea what these flowers are and I haven’t had any luck finding them online.  If any of you know what they are (Judy?), please share!  Trying to identify by online photos isn’t easy!

  1. They look like Snowdrops which are white bells like Lily of the Valley but with beautiful green adornments. Love them. Great way to start the weekend. 🙂

    • I thought you might be able to identify them, Judy. Thanks! Hopefully soon there will be stretches of other sorts of wildflowers, but that made my morning walk so much better.

    I have seen a similar flowering plants here with reed like leaves, but the flowers are much smaller and less spectacular. Like me, they probaly struggle in the heat. It sounds like you had a lovely walk, Janet.

  5. Love snowdrops so much!

  6. They’re so dainty, Janet. They look a lot like snowdrops. 😍

  7. They are beautiful, I also thought that they look a bit like Lily of the vally flowers but then they have pointy leafs.

  8. I wish I had some skill at plant identification, but I’m useless beyond the basics. They certainly are lovely though, whatever they may be!

    • You only need to know which flowers are edible and which ones you like, Hannah. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed these. They’re evidently snowdrops and the only kind of snow I need this time of year.

    I think I like wildflowers and weeds the best, Janet. Especially in the spring. Good job!

  11. Nice mudders, Janet. The fodders can’t be very far away.

    Happy to see that spring has finally come knocking at your end of the world, Janet. Here winter’s already looming large…

    • Even through I know why the seasons are different, it still seems amazing to me. 🙂 I look forward to seeing your winter photos. I had a customer in the shop today who was from South Africa and telling me about its beauty. She said that if anyone has the money, it’s a place that should be seen. 🙂

  13. Leucojum vernum – Spring snowdrops

    • Thanks, Sally. They’re quite beautiful and were especially appreciated as the only wildflowers out. With today’s snow, who knows when the next ones will arrive?
