30 Days Wild | Day twenty three - Pick wild flowers.

Kniveton, Ashbourne.
Pick Wild Flowers - Elizabeth Anne
There is something relaxing and therapeutic about picking and collecting wild flowers, the end result of a pitcher jug filled with blooms standing proudly in your home as a reminder of the walk in the countryside.
Wildflowers can bloom anywhere from gardens to hedgerows. Armed with my trug and clippers I pick flowers to make a beautiful bouquet tied with twine or simply place into a jug on the windowsill, either way, there is something rather special about picking wild flowers. Where I live meadow buttercups adore many fields and with their sunshine yellow petals brighten up any day. So for 30 Days Wild, I'd love you to get outdoors and pick some wildflowers! British Wild Flowers is a great index (with photos) of wild flowers. Perhaps give them as a gift for a loved one, make a pressed flower journal or place into a pretty frame...the list is endless!

Wildflowers most common where I live:

Meadow Buttercups
Crab Apple
Red Campion
Dog Rose

Hopefully this will give you some ideas of what wild flowers to look out for but there are so many. Next time when you're on your walk, take a trug and clippers and get picking pretty fleurs!
