It is not the only one!

in the spring i discovered a field that looked like oil seed rape. It turned out to be cowslip. It is not cultivated so now i have a better camera i will put some pictures on next spring.

That must be quite a sight. I used to drive past an embankment which was covered in cowslips. :)

marsh fritillary

this is a vital plant for the marsh fritillary butteryfly as devils bit scabious is its larval food plant. lovely to see it covering such a large area like that!
