British Wild Flowers

For much of my life I have taken wild flowers for granted without knowing many names, just glad to see familiar faces as the seasons change.

My step-by-step journey from birding, through photography to wildlife, has inevitably led me to the flora that is yet another link in the chain, either directly as host plants for egg-laying insects, as food plants, as sources of nectar and therefore a means of pollination, or as shelter from predators or weather.

I will never stop learning and, as always, have well-used Field Guides to assist identification. Interestingly a big challenge in ID is determining colour. One person's blue is another person's purple. Nothing like some lively debate!
