The photos of these really beautiful Common Spotted Orchids shown were taken near Chequers alongside the Ridgeway Path in The Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire. On the slopes beneath Pulpit Hill there were perhaps thousands of them growing on the chalk.

Cowslips
Above and below are quite a few pictures of Cowslips (Primula veris} - which are one of our favourite wild flowers. They appear in The Spring in England around the same time as their beautiful cousins the Primroses however Cowslips seem to last much longer and are often around well into late May before they go over. Although they will grow almost anywhere, Cowslips do enjoy open meadow and if left alone will spread rapidly to provide a beautiful yellow carpet. One place to see them is on the Wormsley Estate in The Chilterns - particularly just to the east of the cricket ground on the meadows beneath Commonhill Woods.

Creeping Thistle
Above and below are a few photos of Creeping Thistles (Cirsium arvense) which are not necessarily weeds. They are actually really beautiful wild flowers and always nice to look at from when they start to develop their pods before flowering, then with  beautiful flowerheads - to when they go to seed and still looking good. Insects - particularly bees - love thistles and as long as you control them (that is the thistles) they are very beneficial to have in a garden.  In additon the seeds are an important food source for wild birds.
