One of the wonderful things about wild flowers is that they will take root wherever there’s a bit of soil. You can spot them growing in laneways, along the sides of highways and country roads, and forests of course. Their colour and scent add beauty to the landscape and their pollen attracts insects, another benefit. The flowers here are quite different. I was struck by their unique shape and colour; the vibrant yellow of the Salsify and the more muted colours of the others.
