Rosebay willow herb

Like most other wildflowers thus year the rosebay willow herb is earlier than usual and more prolific. I spotted this large clump in our little lane.

Love the haze of colour when you get in close. This wildflower always reminds me of my mother in law who loved it. Just as well as this was the only flower in our garden/field when we first moved in. It still pops up regularly in one flowerbed or other. Like her, I too fell in love with it.

Spectacular color! I saw the second photo on Instagram and loved it. You're so lucky to be in a climate where all that sort of stuff will grow, even if summer is short.
