Amongst the Spring Wildflowers {Photography}

Hello friends!

Aren’t flowers just one of life’s loveliest things? 

My inner fairy just wants to be set free and sit amongst them. I recently went on a nature hike and the woods are filled with some of the prettiest wildflowers I’ve ever seen. A thing I love about hiking in the wilds here is that although its hours before you see another human being, the most amazing birdsong fills the air.

I wanted to take you guys along with me so you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and pretty flowers too! I hope these photos bring as much joy to your day as much as they did mine.


Let’s go!

I think these are Forget-me-nots, although I’m not 100% on that but these little blue wildflowers are so pretty. 

At the moment yellow Primroses are carpeting the banks along the roads and hedgerows, to me these flowers always remind me of my nan. 

Aren’t the colour of bluebells so vibrant against the green? I think these are a hybrid bluebell, not the native British one but I love how they start opening from the bottom and are just such a joyous looking flower.

I even saw my first Large White (Cabbage) butterfly of the year, she was just rest among some long grass, warming up in the morning sunshine – I love cabbage butterflies and always try to grow brassicas (even in my flower beds).

This patch of white wild flowers was so haphazard I kinda fell in love with them…they obviously taste good because it looks like something (probably a snail) had munched on a few of them.

The whole area has erupted in these amazingly beautiful little pink flowers – even my garden has loads of them growing. They’re called Lady’s Smock or Cardamine pratensis if you’re feeling scientific and they are the favoured host food plant of Orange tip butterfly caterpillars!

This part of the world is definitely wildflower country they grow in their hundreds along banks and by the roadsides. These ones are cow parsley (I think!) I love the asymmetric flowers, its my favourite photograph of the day with the soft background and all focus solely on the plant, I think the effect is quite romantic.

So that’s it for this week…I really hope this post bought you a little slice of outdoorsy happiness. Do you have a favourite photo? As always thank you so much for reading my friends, and have a lovely week!

ps. I haven’t used any post processing on these photos the natural light was enough – the light in Cornwall is amazing.

Psps. If you know the names of any of the plants I’ve got wrong please let me know!
