Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

A walk in the woods is always a treat, listening to the birds and searching for attractive areas of plants.

You will find, when the bluebells fade, the wild garlic takes over. In this dell, there were carpets of white!

Allium ursinum, known as wild garlic, has a huge number of different names, depending on your area of the country; cowleek, buckrams, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek, are just a few.

It is native to Europe and Asia, where it grows in moist woodland.

It is a wild relative of onion and garlic, all belonging to the same genus, Allium.

Our grandparents would have been out collecting such plants, as they did the wild berries and herbs.

Have a lovely week, Bev :-)
