Hot on the heels of bluebells in damp English woods come the white flowers I call "stinking onions", an unkind (but descriptive) name for ramsons, otherwise known as "wild garlic". The weather and work have conspired to seriously restrict my photographic activity, and I dashed out and grabbed this shot in a small wood just as the rain started.

Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Your "shots grabbed quickly" are so good!
Also yesterday's pic taken indoors was good, even though I never commented ... I meant to ... but you know ...?

We don't have the bluebells here, though I think we might have the "stinking onions" somewhere in some parts, though they cannot be too frequent. I have heard the name before, though (not "stinking onion", but the other one, "wild garlic" ;)). And I would not know where there might be woods with such carpets of flowers around here! This is so pretty!

Thanks Corinna. I make it sound like it never stops raining in England - it does, usually when I'm at work, then starts again come the weekend! Frustrating!

PS Interesting new avatar you've got there!

Regards, Tony

Heh, I remember that smell from my childhood, in the woods looking for old wood for a camp fire - are you in the northwest Tony, only a lot of your pics are taken around there, and thats the only place I remember wild garlic from.

and the bluebells, and the rain...
