Sorry @ARMANDII but this is the nearest I've seen to wild flowers this year at Ironbridge
First snowdrops on southern edge of woodland we walk past most days
@Scrungee We have those come out with our daffodils as a rule
wild flowers but in my garden primroses first two out now
Celandine seen this morning, a lucky sighting of an exceptionally early flower as the sheep were being brought off the hill to be treated and moved to winter quarters, and we had to make a small detour to avoid the operation, and saw it on our revised route. Noticed these ones in bloom on 23rd December ! Please excuse quality of camera phone images.
@Scrungee This looks like a cabbage mate
Another early flower, Mrs Scrungee found Violets in bloom this morning whilst walking Dog in the woods.
Were they Dog Violets ?
I happened across these tiny wild crocus on the banks of the river Tees at Croft. Never seen these wild before. Are they crocus? Is the plural of crocus really crocus? Or could it be....Crocus'. Crocuses. Crocii?
Hi @Agent Orange these are lovely small flowers and we usually get a small show of them with our daffs in the front garden but with this weather they've showed no appearance
Meadow Saffron? Colchicum autumnale - Wikipedia
Hi @Scrungee I should have mentioned that this was only last wednesday, so I guess it couldnt be Meadow Saffron as the article says they are autumn flowering. Digging further, I suppose Crocus tommasinianus is the closest I can find.
Good afternoon @Agent Orange my friend and very nice they are to "Crocuses" is the most common form, but the Latin masculine plural "croci" may be used as well.
Separate names with a comma.
