John H, great photos
Must admit i'm pleased that councils for whatever reason (money/bees) have stopped mowing verges so much. I'd much rather see wild flowers (some may see weeds), rather than a closely mown patch of grass, which was usually half bald.
On the A4174 Bristol Ring Road approaching Keysham there is about a 1/2 mile carpet of Cowslips covering the verge in the Spring. Looks wonderful when they're out, though they're over now. At present there seem to be plenty of Coltsfoot and Buttercups around - still looks good!
