Wild Flowers of the Lake District

Wild Flowers of the Lake District

Following on from yesterday’s post, this photography commission was quite simple and, combined with a nice walk, very pleasant to do (even if I did have 20 pounds of camera equipment on my back at the time!)
"this commission was quite simple and, combined with a nice walk, very pleasant to do (even if I did have 20 pounds of camera equipment on my back at the time!)…"

My commission – macro photography of the wild flowers that grow around Serpentine Woods near Kendal, in the Lake District, and then out onto the Kendal Heights and around the rough areas of Kendal Golf Course.

So what did I get? Early Purple Orchids, Cowslip, Wild Strawberries, Hawthorn, Dandelion Clocks, Wild Bluebells, Poppies and Ramsons (or Wild Garlic); of course Ramsons, you can’t move for the blighters in Serpentine Wood at this time of year.

And, one last small purple flower that I couldn’t identify. It has five lilac petals with white streaks, and small hairs that catch the light. It has red stamens with yellow tips and a very serrated leaf. If anyone has any thoughts on what this is, let me know in the comments.

 
All the best,
