There is an abundance of wildflowers at the moment as we are approaching the summer solstice. I have been enjoying posts of fellow bloggers showing the wildflowers from different places around the world. Today I have ventured out again and made an exciting discovery of Himalayan balsam, which is a completely new plant to me. It is an invasive species and can be found along river banks just like this one. It typically grows up to 1-2 meters and has beautiful pink flowers which captivated me.
I have not written the wildflowers post in May as I was away at the end of the month so here are the highlights of what has been blooming in the recent two months.
Sadly, I did not have any good photos of poppies and cornflowers which to my are the real summer star flowers. The thistles and burdocks are coming into bloom now and I am looking forward to another month and more wildflower findings.
