Home Ground

Shortly before leaving for my trip to the UK last week I took a few moments to breathe in Spring on the hillsides near my home.

It was here that I found the pulsatilla I featured on Easter Sunday, along with these wild flowers – Thlaspi caerulescens:

And this unknown one:

It was on a chalky hillside, well-drained and south-facing, photographed early April. If anyone can help me identify it I’d be grateful!

Thank you!

  1. Beautiful photos, makes our flowers here in Pittsburgh seem oh so normal…we do have a great conservatory (Phipps) for all of the interesting buds, but I can’t wait to get out into the countryside!


  2. In our garden we have a rock-garden plant “Schleifenblume” (Iberis sempervirens). It looks like
    the wild Thlaspi caerulescens. The unknown wild flower I haven´t yet seen on our hillsides and
    nowhere could find its name.
    I especially like the first photo. What a calmness and loneliness – so near to the sky!
