Lady's smock

35 years ago we could walk along meadows
of cuckoo flowers alias lady's smock
Cardamine pratensis and
cowslip alias
Primula veris ;
for the past thirty years we could not walk along ...

the more glad I was to detect about five square metres
with lady's smock these days.

Certainly evidence for that
Seanhenge is one of the places
where nature loves to ... survive.


  1. That's wonderful! A refuge for wildflowers! I hate the thought of them becoming extinct.

  2. I'm not surprised at all that a plant, sacred to the fairies, would survive well in Seanhenge.

  3. Ashley,
    yes, it is a lovely surprise. There have so many wildflowers almost vanished in the past decades.

    it's kind of you to write so. :)

    I don't think so. Treating nature with respect would be enough, for a beginning ... :)

  4. And there was me thinking respect = love...

  5. Ha, CherryPie,
    love includes respect – at least it should –, but respecting my neighbour does not necessarily mean that I do love him.

    Yours sincerely nitpicker. :)

  6. That is quite true (about your neighbour) and that love includes respect :-)

    I think everyone loves some aspect of nature... and that is why nature survives ;-)

    Nature of course is stronger than man and his wayward thoughts...

  7. Ah, CherryPie,
    I knew from the beginning what you mean(t); just could not resist a wee bit of nitpicking.
