A regular round-up of what wild flower lovers have been discovering this week.
The summer’s splendours might be fading, but tonight’s #wildflowerhour was better than ever. Thank you to everyone who took part. To join in next week, it’s very simple. You just need to tweet pictures of the flowers you’ve seen growing wild using the hashtag #wildflowerhour. It’s better if you do it when we’re all around at 8pm on a Sunday night, as that’s when we discuss what we’ve seen and help each other out with plant IDs and tips on where to go, etc.
You can review the highlights here. And here are the finds from this weekend:
And at the end of tonight’s hour, I asked people where their favourite wild flower locations were. This is what they suggested:
@fennelandfern for us it was when we stayed on Isle of Harris one June. There was a spectacular wild flower meadow outside the cottage.

And before you go, can you ID this plant?

Wild Flower Hour takes place every Sunday at 8pm on twitter and Instagram. Just add #wildflowerhour to your tweets of photos of flowers you’ve found at any time during the week or weekend, and do join the conversation at 8pm on Sunday so that wild flower enthusiasts can find one another and learn more about our amazing native flora.
