I know what they are too and I bet Euphro DOES know!

kostika says:

They're a rather rare wild flower. So we'll see if you're right once Euph answers.

Euphro says:

Wow, some lovely cowslips (Primula veris). Very hard to find nowadays :)

kostika says:

You are very correct dear sir. I'll have to try harder next time to stump you.

I think he passed. :D

kostika says:

I think he must be the walking encyclopedia of botanics. I can't even stump him with very rare wild flowers.

Very rare? They're protected here, but I don't think they have "very rare" status yet..

Geodyne says:

On a tangent, sorry I missed you last week.

kostika says:

I jsut know what the hubby tells me. He says they're very rare to find, much less in the huge patch we found them, because they are very susceptible to weed killers so they don't grow much.

They're protected here also. (jailing offense if you pick them)

daz says:

Can't pick them here, either.

kostika says:

Geo was sorry to missyou too. Next time maybe.

Very pretty - I'm fascinated to see what various English flowers look like as I've read so many Englsh authors.

I like cowslips.

Euphro says:

They were much more comon when I was a child. You see them planted on motorway embankments in some places, because there they are less likely to be exposed to weedkillers and artificial fertilizers (which may interfere with any symbiotic fungal associations they need to grow) :)

kostika says:

Hmmm...odd you mention the fungal association. The mass of them we found is in the village graveyard (and jsut beyond)

Viv says:

I've seen quite a few banks this year

and knew the naming wasn't a challenge - but learnt something again - symbiotic fungal conditions
