Since my last Duver post just under two weeks ago, things have gone MAD.
I just Googled to see whether there is a collective noun for Bluebells, and whilst the answer’s ‘no’, Paul Wiegman, in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggested there should be collective nouns for many wild flowers, and came up with a ‘pealing’ of Bluebells. That might work for the gentle scattering shown below, but for a proper bluebell wood it seems a little understated. Instead I propose a ‘ding dong’. What do you think?
There’s hawthorn everywhere:
And in the hedgerow, Herb-Robert (Geranium robertianum), Greater Stitchwort (Stellaria holostea) with Lesser Celandine (Ranunculus ficaria),
and this one, which looks familiar, but I just can’t find out what it’s called. Someone put me out of my misery please?
