Floral delights at Sand Point

Not so long ago we visited Sand Point in Somerset. Indeed, I did a post about seeing distant Cardiff from there. Let’s move in close this time and look at some of the flowers that grow on this lovely headland. It was March when we went so don’t expect a flurry of summer blooms, but rather some hardy species which just poke a head up above the ground and produce a little gem of a flower.

And I include the dandelion in that. Just because they are common and a bit of a pest in gardens, doesn’t mean they aren’t lovely.


This one had found a sheltered spot, facing south and had risked an early bloom. Bright blobs of sunshine yellow bring a smile to my face. Celandines do it as well.


Next come violets – of a kind.


Well not very violet in colour. It’s a white violet but others, in the more normal colour could be found sheltered by rocks.




Some plants made use of the rocks and took root in them, producing lovely little natural rock gardens.


Ah yes. There was wonderful lichen as well!
