Wildflowers of the UK
Please take any photographs you can of 'native species' (naturally occurring in the UK) and not 'introduced species' (not naturally occurring in the UK) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wildflower Also, please do not include photographs of wildflowers you have grown from packets of seeds. If you have not seen a wildflower in your area before, then please say so under 'notes' when you upload your spotting. If you have lost a wildflower in your area, then please find a spotting that someone else has uploaded of that wildflower, and tell the mission in that comment box. Although this is a serious mission, we hope you enjoy taking photographs and submitting your spottings. Happy snapping! Sign in to join mission
