365 - 120 Flowers

On the school run I drive past Hampstead Heath and today there was a bit of a traffic jam so I had time to notice the flowers on side of the road. Not sure what their name in English is but we had them in the field at my Grandparents' house when I was a little girl but they disappeared within a few years. Their stems don't snap when you try to pick them or when the farmer came with his big machine. Instead the whole root ball comes out and so they never had chance to keep growing. Makes me really sad, they look so cheery. Although happy to see them here to grow in such abundance.


  1. Think they are "Queen Ann's Lace" or "Wild Carrot" I like them too. There were thousands at Kew yesterday.
