Your flower close-ups are so lovely…sighh…! And so far the only thing I recognise as common to Britain too is the beautiful garden crocus. Fascinating to be offered a glimpse of your wild flowers, all exotic blooms to me.
It’s always interesting to me to find which flowers can be found in other places. I am very passionate about our little forest wildflowers and have many thousand photos of them. In the small area through which I tend to wander, (only about a thousand square miles) I have found and photographed over 200 different species.
Speaking of framing, I really like the way the leaves in the second photo seem to frame the blossom.
The name, yellow bells, reminded me of the song we used to sing at camp and elsewhere: “White Coral Bells.” I started wondering about it, and found an explanation in a 2004 garden section of NY Times. It says: “Many gardeners recall the old children’s round that starts: ”White coral bells upon a slender stalk/lilies of the valley deck my garden walk.” And no doubt many have noticed the seeming contradiction. Lilies of the valley (Convallaria majalus) have white, bell-like flowers and narrow, upright bright green leaves. Coral bells are bushy, broad-leafed plants, and their flowers are typically red. Both plants can be called coral bells because coral can be milky white as well as its namesake orange-red, and in the days when coral jewelry was common, everybody knew it.”
