Wild Flowers

This perennial spring vetch - I think it might be Lathyrus verna - has thrived in our garden for 20 years.

Herb robert seeds itself everywhere. The old leaves turn crimson.

Welsh poppy is another prolific self-seeder, moving around the garden as seeds stuck in the mud on my boots. It has even found its way into the greenhouse.


  1. The most prolific plant in my garden is the Violet, it is such a thug. It even beats up the Wild Garlic.

  2. Wonderful how violets seed themselves around, Toffeeapple - I believe ants carry the seeds around....

  3. Both herb Robert and Welsh poppies thrive in my garden, providing a reliable and welcome source of colour.

  4. Hi Lee, they're both welcome guests in mine - they fill in all the gaps very nicely!
