Both Wild Garlics together- Ramsons and Jack By The Hedge, or Garlic Mustard

We headed out to Renishaw Gardens today for Lynn’s birthday, to enjoy the beautiful gardens, lakes and Bluebell woods. The sight and scent in the warm sunshine was wonderful, especially with the lime-green Beech leaves just breaking. So today, I’ll just post a few photo’s of some of the wonderful wild flowers out there and locally at the moment,with the Bluebells: Pink Purslane, Red Campion, Alkanet

Alkanet, the roots are a source of purple dye
