Highland Flowers


Plenty of flowers when we were in Pitlochry, but this is one of my favourites - Ragged Robin. I often think it looks as though someone has taken a pair of nail scissors to a red campion. Ragged Robin is quite a rare flower, while red campion is fairly common across the UK.

We have bits of ragged robin around but I do agree with you that it looks like a nail-scissored campion - we have masses of that and it looks so beautiful, especially when it merges with speedwell. Miss the horse chestnut header.

I see this growing along the roadways here, but have never seen it close up. Your are right, it does look snipped.

Beautiful! Like RG said we don't have that one. I was once in Pitlochry long ago, but I think it wasn't flower time.

I'm a bit behind in my blog reading, so I'm doing this in reverse order. Another delightful name, "Ragged Robin." And a lovely flower to go with it.
