Lesser celandine flowers
You've saved a lot of yed scrattin there, David; Lesser Celandine they are.
They are lovely little woodland flowers David, a fine show but is that bamboo/knotweed showing here & there ?
A lovely feast for the eyes..thank you David.
Lovely, cheerful Springtime photo!
They like the damp woodlands - a relative of the Buttercup family and known as Pilewort - a remedy for Hemorroids! Hard to get rid of in the garden.....
oops! 'Haemorrhoids' Don't mean they are hard to get rid of in the garden!
Veronica...Is it the Pilewort that is hard to get rid of in the garden,
or is it the Hemorroids ? Ray.
Which is hard to get rid of in the garden...the Pilewort or the piles?LOL
Got there before you Hahaha
Have a look at a photo of the roots of the Pilewort.
Maureen you have to handle the tubular roots very carefully as the smallest piece left behind encourages more growth. The flowers do look nice but 'not in my backyard'! (garden)
Veronica,don't the roots look like haemorroids its strange how some plants do look like the ( for want of a better word) ailment..isn't it.
And as for plants growing out of control,some years ago I picked some wild garlic from a wood in Yorkshire..it takes me all my time keeping it down.
Hello again Veronica,what I should have said but didn't,was that the roots of the Pilewort look so much like haemorroids.ha ha.
Maureen I know what you mean ( not that I suffer from the ailment!). I think you find that with herbal remedies - they do look like what they are supposed to cure sometimes. Most medicines come from plants anyway.
Beautiful. One of Wordsworth's wild favourite flowers. He wrote a few poems about them.
