ALONG THE ROADSIDE

Our first visitor on 1st of May


Bluebell Ladies


The traditional May Bush

Our local well dressed for Summer


An abundance of Cowslips


Unidentified yellow flowers - well I know what
they are not


Perhaps these are called Bird Eye's ?

The same again ?

  1. It was lovely seeing the views along your roadside. The May bush looks fascinating are the ribbons put on by everyone at the same time? Could the yellow flowers be escaped rape seed and the white flower a type of Stitchwort, we have both in flower around here at the moment. Sarah x

    1. Thank you for your comments Sarah. You may very well be right about the yellow and white flowers, I shall have to take a closer look at the yellow flowers.
      In regards to the May Bush you may find the answer to your question about dressing the bush on my partners blog: http://theeverlivingones.blogspot.ie

    1. Thank you Val. There are two ways of viewing May, some people see it as the start of Summer as we do in Ireland and others as Spring. Well whatever, for to the abundant freshness in flowers and leaves is truly wonderful.

  4. What a beautiful visitor! And lovely photos of the flowers and well. I was thinking stray rapeseed too for the yellow flowers. Thank you for posting the link to your partner's lovely blog :-) xx

    1. That visitor the Cock Pheasant) is wily old bird, for two seasons now he and his two hens have avoided the guns by staying close to our back garden. On May morning he was stood upright looking in at us. I went for my camera and by the time I returned he had turned to jump down, which is why his fullness is missing!
      Thank you for your comment Teresa and Mrs H is grateful in you following her blog xx

    1. Hello Hilary!
      I can confirm that both Sarah and Teresa were correct those yellow flowers that I was unable to name, are in fact rape from some accidental planting.
      For I am fairly certain that the field behind them has never been sown with that particular crop. So glad that you enjoyed the blog post - thank you.

  6. This is a perfect time of year and I love seeing the wild flowers in bloom along roadsides and just about everywhere they can set root.
