November wildflowers

Every Sunday evening Twitter hosts #wildflowerhour by @BSBIbotany and @fennelandfern. Everyone is welcomed to post photos of wildflowers found in the nature to keep track of what is still in bloom. I have joined on the couple of occasions and yesterday there was a really good turnout and lots of lovely photos. This Saturday Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland hosts an annual exhibition meeting in Natural History Museum in London. They also organise the New Year Plant Hunt which sounds really interesting and I am willing to find out more about it.

I went yesterday for a usual walk down the River Thames and spotted just few flowers. So today, after my dentist appointment I nipped into the Bishop’s Park on the other side of the river and got few more photos. There was a light frost in some places of the park and the leaves and grasses looked beautifully framed. Might save those for another post!

I hope I did get all the identifications right but if any mistakes, please let me know. Are there any wildflowers still blooming in your places?

      1. Yes, they are in fact Alpine flowers. They should be frost tolerant. Therefore I planted mine in the garden as an experiment. We’ll see!
        I love your images very much, all of them🌹
