Day four - Identifying Wildflowers
I noticed a few days ago that this plant had taken over a patch of the front garden
Nestling quite comfortably between the wallflowers and the hydrangea
At first we thought it was a plant called Tormentil but I read further and that plant has a flower with four petals whereas this one had five. P said he thought it might be Wood Avens and when we turned the page from the notes about Tormentil there it was!
Now this is a wild flower, a woodland plant that has somehow ended up in our garden. Have the seeds been dropped by passing birds? Or come into the garden on the fur of an animal? Or have we brought it in on our wellies or boots after a walk in the woods?
