 Hi Hollins, Where were you in the picture of the two ladies sitting by the river? It looks so peaceful.

Hi Barbiroli,
Yes, it is very peaceful. The photo is of me and my mum and it is in Adelboden in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland.
All the wild flower photos were taken there.

Thanks Barbiroli.
I saw these in the river this morning. Don't know what they are but they looked really pretty. Probably some kind of horrible weed!

Think they are white water buttercup but not 100% certain.

Probably just weeds again but I thought this arrangement looked quite attractive.

The plant has a very pungent quite unpleasant smell, especially if bruised.

The leaves look like Oxalis.

Yes, thanks Nemesis. I put oxalis into google and it came up with this. Oxalis acetosella, wood sorrel.

Here are a few pics of the bluebells and the wild garlic which are looking lovely at the moment.

They look really beautiful Hollins.    We were hoping to do a walk again to see them this year but time is running out so we must do it soon.
Cadair Ifan Goch above Plas Maenan is a good spot to see them and also above Dolgarrog in the Ardda area.

Also Coed Parc Mawr near Henryd is stunning at the moment with woodland flowers. I went up there last week and strolled up to old Llangelynin Chuch too. Unfortunately I forgot my camera.
