More Blooms Go Wild in Flaxton – fancy a challenge?
On her lock-down daily exercise in the village Gill Ramsden (Wroe) has been busy photographing, then researching, many of the wild flowers that can be found in Flaxton in spring. These are pictured in the gallery below.
She’s produced a guide to the flowers, along with some interesting information about each one; some fact and some folklore! You can download the Flowers Go Wild in Flaxton Guide to find out more about the wild flowers or you can view the updated Guide here.
She’s added photographs and details of sixteen new flowers, which have all popped up in the last two weeks! She’s also added a thank you at the end of the guide to village members for assistance with recent identification and for their positive feedback.
There is a series of photographs showing the flowers in their natural habitat in the village.
See if you can spot them all in the ‘Go Wild in Flaxton Challenge’. Just click on the link Go Wild in Flaxton Challenge.
We apologise that the challenge may be a little slow to display on Smart Phones.
Please note: we haven’t included daffodils (for which Flaxton is so famous) or snowdrops, as you all know what they are and they had finished flowering when compiling this challenge! We know that other species are now coming into flower, too. Do provide us with details of any new ones you spot on your walks in the village!
(Please remember that it is an offence to pick certain species and that some flowers or their leaves may be harmful if eaten or even touched.)
We will provide the answers at a later date.
Gill and Ian
