Walking with wildflowers

My grandmother was a great naturalist. She taught me many names of wild flowers as a child, but many of them don't translate to a New Zealand context. Last night I came back home from a dusk walk with a lovely posy, which includes wild wheat, clover, trifoil, Queen Anne Lace / ragwort and wild carrot.

I found a beautiful website (from the UK) which assisted with my identification, www.wildcardwalks.co.uk

  1. So glad that my website was of use to you Jane. You certainly live in a beautiful country (although I've never been) and it's good to learn that we share much of the same flora in spite of our different climates.
    I love your blog - we obviously both share a love of our countryside.
    Every good wish for 2015.
