Daisies

British motorways and highways aren’t particularly pleasant places (Hey I’m looking at you, M25… Grr…), but at this time of year the metal crash barriers along the central reservation and the banks beside the hard-shoulder are bursting with Wild Daisies – or if you want to get all scientific about it; Oxeyes.  They’re one of my favourite things about summer 🙂

Sunny and I went for another meadow walk near our home one afternoon and found a crop of them, among some other lovely wild things…

Poking between the long grass and buttercups were these Common Spotted Orchids.




Whilst I picking a bunch of daisies I found these tiny wild (woodland) strawberries growing.
