Ramson Flower

Posted by
Philip (South Wales, United Kingdom) on 20 May 2010 in Plant & Nature.

The ramson flower which covers the wood in Bishopston (Gower, South Wales) at this time of year. It is a wonderful sight.

Bishopston Valley was created in the last Ice Age and the ancient wood covering the valley is quite rare in the UK. It is thought that the wood has been here since climate warming after the ice age.

The Bishopston wood must be a stunning place, judging from your pictures!
This is a lovely flower which covers a large part of our garden too and the leaves are very tasteful on a cheese sandwich..;-))
