Clover, Trefoil, Buttercups

photos of wild flowers easily overlooked in farmland pasture. This farm qualifies as a nature reserve, and the neighbouring farm has an unspoilt stream that is a reserve for grass snakes.

Happily, this local field hasn't been ploughed up or reseeded for decades, and it shows:

Being a certified eccentric, I've added both the yellow trefoil and crimson clover to my new flower garden! The common white clover has already invaded under its own steam :)
