Wild Garlic


Not near me, but this is from Ulverston, Cumbria – via Flickr. This shot was too nice not to share. It’s the season now. Or at least I think it is, anyway, but because of our weird never ending winter it might still take a while. What a scene though, and probably a wonderful smell too – it’s one of the few times nature really makes an effort to get up your nose. I remember when I lived on the south coast for a brief period, there was an amazing place where you had the combination of coastal vegetation, the saline breeze and intense wild garlic aromas. For me it’s the sign that summer is on the way.

Lovely, absorbing scene. Here – everything seems to be at least a month behind. We don’t get a lot of wild garlic – not wooded enough, I suppose, but there is some – I’ll have to look.
