All lovely - I think you are correct Bixa - Vetch is a kind of pea I think ... we have quite a few types here growing in the wild . This is wild garlic which is quite abundant at the moment in woodland (Allium ursinum)
Oh, interesting! Looking at your picture, I'd simply assumed the spiky leaves belonged to the wild garlic, but it's the really the beautiful broad ones. Do people ever use it in landscaping, or is it only found wild?
It kills me that you keep calling it a "scraggly garden", Mossie, when it really it has the most delightful cottage garden feel to it. The form you originally gave it is still there, but the "gentle chaos" has made a beautiful mark on it too. I love the mossy stairs and the charming figure peeping out from them.
Lovely purple flower Amboseli . Mossie -your garden is lovely, especially I am a fan of your orange poppies alas they don't last too long but beautiful all the more. Bixa - I do have another form of wild garlic in my garden -or did have ( I lifted some bulbs for later replanting as I was digging over the border after the wall was re-erected) although those are a different variety and do indeed have spiky leaves. the flowers are very similar nevertheless.
