Carpet of white

A hidden woodland flowers this time of year with a carpet of white flowering wild garlic.

On the ascent up the woods, I encounter two wild flowers; the first, Pink Campion.

Pink Campion (Silene dioica)

Further up the hill amongst the ferns, the bluebells start.

Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta)

Along the path at the top of the hill, the wild garlic begins. Their smell and colour dazzles the senses.

Wild Garlic (Allium ursinum)

Along the path, Hogweed grows.

Common Hogweed ( Heracleum sphondylium)

Altogether a smaller plant than its giant cousin, it marks for me the return of summer in the hedgerows.
