spring wild flowers (part 1)

These magnificent photos were taken by Trond Arnesen who stayed at Gargarou over the spring of this year 2012. He is from Norway and a botanist; he spent much time searching out and identifying the plants here. Most of the photos were taken on our land and some on his walks around the local area. Our warmest thanks and gratitude to our good friend Trond………. All images copyrighted by Trond Arnesen

    The pictures are beautiful. Thank you for posting. I think the fifth flower from the bottom is probably sea squill (Urginea maritima), not common asphodel.

    Hello Ibrahim,
    Thanks for your thoughts on the Asphodel. Sea squill and common asphodel is much alike in flower shape, although A usually has longer petals and flower buds. But if I had included the leaves in the picture, you would not be in doubt. They are narrow and long… just as you find with A.
