Welcome – British wildflowers
Welcome to my blog! I love spotting wildflowers when I’m out and about in nature. I’m always taking pics – often with my smartphone – some better than others! Recently I’ve been making more effort to identify them but I’m not a botanist.
This website is intended to be a blog where I put all my most recent pics, but I’m also building an identification resource. Every time I ID something new, I try to explain a bit about it. See these in the Wildflower links down the right hand side. You can see I still have a way to go! The pages I have put up may be incomplete because I only write about flowers I have seen. There may be related species I haven’t come across yet. There are many more wildflower pics on this site – just use the search box (top right) to find them or scroll through my posts.
You might notice that the month given in the blog post heading doesn’t match the month the post was written. This is because I’m often out and about and busy in the summer and then write it up in the winter.
This is where I put things spotted while out and about that don’t justify their own blog post:
