There is something special about flowers that can bring so much cheer to people. Whether a professional bouquet from somewhere like this florist Tewkesbury based the Flowershed Tewkesbury sent to your wife on her wedding anniversary or a hand picked bunch of flowers offered from a child to a parent – flowers have the ability to bring so much joy.

Summer is the perfect time of the year to enjoy the wildflowers which we have in abundance in the UK. Heading out to the woodlands and the fields and meadows for a walk is a great way to relax and enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer. Here are some beautiful British wildflowers to keep your eye out for this summer…

Corncockle – This pretty pink flower can be seen all around the UK in the summer months and is a popular addition to wildflower meadows. Tall and strikingly pink this was once considered a weed.
