Those are different, Ian, a nice change from the normal wildflowers. I love the little burn.

Hi Kits,

I have just been looking at your lovely photos from 16th April. I just wanted to clarify a couple of the IDs for you.

From your first post,

No. 1, this is Garlic Mustard.
No. 2, this is Ground Ivy.
No. 4, This can't be hawthorn because it doesn't have any leaves. Hawthorn flowers after the leaves appear. It is probably either Blackthorn or Cherry Plum.

From your second post,

No. 3, this is Greater Stitchwort.

This is our native wild wood anenome, Anemone nemorosa. It is lovely, isn't it?

I reckon it is Russian Comfrey, Symphytum x uplandicum.

Sorry, Kits, I didn't mean it to seem like that. You've taken some beautiful photographs of lovely plants. Thank you for sharing them with us and I hope you will continue to do so.

Oh dear - nooooo I didn't take it as criticism! I don't know very much about wildflowers at all, Honesty, and am pleased that you recognise what they are! Do carry on correcting me - I am bound to get more wrong than right, and how else do I learn, if I don't get given the right names?
