That is really beautiful - native wild cowslip or whatever!
Whilst on the subject of ID please could anyone tell me the names
of the three species of wildflowers which have popped up in my
wildflower garden uninvited, but nevertheless very welcome!! Hoping
I can post these photos as I haven't tried it in a while!! Thanks for
any help you can give in advance.
Sorry these pictures aren't very close up - maybe you could zoom in
to see them better. I would really like to know if I should keep them
for the butterflies/bees or discard them as weeds and a nuisance.
The top one is really weird - not really a flower but a cluster of
little nobbles (a bit like an unripe blackberry on a long stalk, but pink)
the second one is in front of the corn marigold in the foreground and has
dark brown little cones surrounded at the base by tiny little white frilly
things which I can't really describe as flowers either! The last one is
pinkish purple flowers growing in a mass on sprawling stems with alternate
green leaves. Hope this helps as it sounds rather vague!
