Unofficial Wakefield in Bloom


The Walk back from the hospital down the long alley today with camera in hand. The morning was damp, after night time fog. I saw an unofficial in bloom Wakefield..

















This pretty flower grows all along the hedge row.It is pretty, lace like and looks like snowflakes I think...














My home made wine making favourites, a dandelion with its petals held up to keep the night time cold off, waiting for the sun to warm it up...












This was the gorgeous purple flowered plant i walked past growing wild beneath some tree's.I dont know what it is but the purple cone like flowers contrast to the green leaves.









This is the purple flower, with the creeping green leaves. Love to know if anybody knows what it is.

I live in Switzerland and those plants are very common here. They also come in white. I hadn't seen them when I was in the U.K. I do not know the name but I shall try and find out for you. Karen.

I was going to guess a corydalis as well... but maybe solida? It's a bleeding heart relative, if that's what it is...
