British wildflowers, Bush vetch, Garlic mustard, Herb Robert, Honesty, Red campion, Shining crane's-bill, Spring colour, spring wildflowers
These gorgeous wildflowers are now blooming in the sunnier, more sheltered spots I pass on my daily walks:
Bush vetch (Vicia sepium), the first of the vetches I’ve seen this year.
Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata), also known as Jack-by-the-hedge
Honesty (Lunaria annua), originally a garden escapee but now naturalised in the local countryside
Red campion (Silene dioica)
Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum) and, below, its cousin, Shining crane’s-bill (Geranium lucidum). As you can see, the flowers of these two are very similar but the leaves are quite different.
