Wildflowers of Scotland – Part 1

There’s a garden out in my yard somewhere, but its buried in snow.  I think the last thing anyone wants to see is more snow pictures so perhaps a travelogue might be more fun.  Last June, we took a wonderful trip to Scotland.  We hiked in Braemar, Durness, the Isle of Skye and Glencoe.  I took a lot of photos of wild flowers, and I hope I have identified them correctly.  Here are some of my favorites.  Enjoy!

One thought on “Wildflowers of Scotland – Part 1

  1. Great post. I love traveling and adore wildflowers. In fact, if the weather allows, I hope to do a bit of hiking in the SC Upstate this weekend. I have a woodland area with trilliums, bloodroot and a handful of other native perennials, but would love to see the Oconee bell (Shortia galacifolia) which is just coming into bloom.
