Cuckooflower

One of my favourite springtime flowers has started to bloom! The cuckooflowers are delicate and beautiful and mean spring is really in full flow. Later the buttercups will join them and we will have a lovely meadow 🙂

    1. Here’s a quote from http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/species/cuckooflower 🙂

      “Cuckooflower, also commonly known as ‘Lady’s-smock’, is a pretty springtime perennial of damp, grassy places like wet meadows, ditches and riverbanks, as well as roadside verges. Its pale pink flowers bloom from April to June and are thought to coincide with the arrival of the first cuckoo – a sure sign that spring has arrived at last.”
