Ragged Robin, Lychnis flos-cuculi
The Dutch name, Koekoek's bloem (Cuckoo flower) must be derived from the Latin name, Lychnis flos-cuculi, for this lovely flower. My latin is none to speak of (what I know is what I "pick up" from the names in natural history.)
Here you see them growing among the Buttercups along the road.
This one I've not figured out yet, and any help in identifying it is very welcome. Due to Francis' death I'm very slow in getting into spring/summer mode. It all seems to pass me by (still!) with me not really getting into gear yet.
Germander Speedwell, Veronica camaedrys
Red Clover, Trifolium pratense
Three-cornered Garlic, Allium triguetrum
Dog Rose, Rosa canina
It was Frouke, my cousin from Holland, spent a week here, recently, and she painted the bathroom (soft violet) and the livingroom in white. Plus helping me to sort out a lot of Francis' stuff in the bedroom and his workroom. Which I've reclaimed again. And this walk we did together too. To get me into the mood again of getting out onto the road.
So hopefully I'll be getting back to doing that and posting regularly again.
