“March brings breezes, loud and shrill ,
April brings the primrose sweet,
At last spring has arrived, the sun is shining, bees are buzzing and the woods and gardens are filled with spring flowers. But do you know what they are called in English? Their names are often poetic like the forget-me-not or the lily of the valley. Or they may to conjure up images of wild and fanatastic animals like the dandelion or the snapdragon , which flowers in June. Others sound less exotic, like the delicate and beautiful cowslip , the sweet smelling violet or the white wood anemone growing in the hedgerows .
So, as spring turns to summer and you are hiking through the woods, look out for the foxglove blooming amongst the trees … or maybe you will just be relaxing in the garden with a cool drink admiring the peonies !
Now it’s your turn … can you tell which photos and names fit together?
