Identification Parade

15 Jul

I know sod all about flowers…but I know a couple of bloggers who are pretty good at their plant identification.  So if you’re reading Mark and Sheila, gonna give me a clue so I can put names to the photos!

I snapped these on Sunday on the Fife Coastal Path, all within a couple of metres of each other…and these were only a few of the varieties on offer.  All help gratefully received.

    The first one is an orchid, but I’m not certain which one. I think it’s Pyramidal Orchid, which according to my book is found on chalk grasslands and dunes.
    The blue bell shaped flower in a harebell – one of my favourite summer flowers.
    I’m not sure what the wee pink one is.
    The lilac flower is a Scabious. It looks like Small Scabious, but my book says that is very rare in Scotland, so I presume it is the usual Devil’s bit Scabious.
    For the seedhead, I’d really need to see the leaves to have a stab at this. It looks like one of the Hawksweeds.

    Thanks for that Sheila 😀 . I define flowers by size and colour as in wee blue flower etc.
