Wild Flowers

Bloody crane'sbill Geranium sanguineum, which grows all along the Northumberland coast and thrives in the dry soil in my garden
Wood crane'sbill Geranium sylvaticum is a frequent component of the flora of Pennine hay meadows and self-seeds in my garden

The ubiquitous ox-eye daisy Chrysanthemum leucanthemum has a long flowering period.


  1. The Ox-eye seems to colonise road-side verges and central reservations here but I don't think we get too much Cranesbill of any description in the wild. Shame really, it is such a pretty flower.

  2. Ox-eye daisy seems to be used in just about every wild flower reseeding scheme Toffeeapple - I wonder how much of it that you see along roadsides is actually natural?
