My world is overgrown

Name that plant


In case you are wondering were I have been the last few days, then no I haven't been hiding in this wild image above, tempting as that prospect may seem. No. Just time out was needed after no sleep due to the nasty storm we had and the lingering migraine. I have however been wondering round the wilder overgrown parts and greener bits of town and some of the wetter parts as I recovered today. Wetter as in public houses that is or what some of you may refer to as bars or inns. This is obviously a dry part, a lovely overgrown plot of land off the beaten track of the Poyll Dooey. No idea what the various plants and grasses are here ,so feel free to name and shame them for me. I can play safe by saying I see ferns and conifers.I can confidently say I also see dipping into a triangle of light the cloudless sky. I can also tell you that this is actually a usually well beaten down path that is obviously fighting back. Who knows maybe they are Triffids that sprung up after the awful weather. I'll leave you to ponder that one.





Can you name any?

I don't know what the plant is. I thought it was wild carrot at first, but I am not so sure.

We can relate to wet and very wet around here. Though the sun has granted us a reprieve today.

Luiz Ramos said...

I cannot name them, but they are beautiful.

Pam said...

Where the hell have you been? Thought the storm had got you.

Hyde DP said...

overgrown everywhere here too this summer

koala said...

Lovely overgrow.
Somehow I managed to read "Just time out was needed after no sleep due to the nasty storm we had and the lingering migraine" as lingerie migration. Now that would be a undeniable reason to get more sleep.

Sylvia K said...

I was going to ask the same thing as Pam, was getting worried about you! I have no idea what the plants are called, but they're lovely. I particularly love that blue V of a sky! And the green is lovely! Take care, have a JD for me the next time you visit a public house, bar or whatever .... Have a great week!

Willa said...

but it's a good hiding place i think. glad you feel better now.

marley said...

I like that blue triangle. Nice.

I think I can see an Elderflower tree and some Cows Parsley. I think!

Jon, Ramsey said...

Tell the truth you have been in the pub all this time. The storm didn't clear the air, it's still hot.

Carver said...

I love wild and overgrown places. Good thing since that describes my garden at the moment. Sorry about your migraine. Take care.

Guy D said...

Beautiful plant and a fantastic photo.

Have a great week

Yes things have been a tad damp here in Ramsey over the past few days but still warm. I know the white flower as cowslip.

ewok1993 said...

We have those flowery thingys (very scientific) out here too, a lot of them. But don't know the name.

Hope your week is a good one.

Leslie: said...

I'm terrible with plant names. I'd call them all "weeds." hahahaha But pretty weeds all the same. ;D

Virginia said...

I was going to guess Queen Ann's Lace a lovely wild flower that we all love here. That's what it looks like to me. Great shot B.

erin said...

i thought queen anne's lace too, is what i thought the flatish white flowers are.
beautiful capture.
have a wonderful tuesday.

Elisabeth's bright side said...

I hope it's not the Triffids since I selfishly would miss your joyful postings :)

Gaelyn said...

Looks like an inviting place to hide to me. But then maybe the watering hole is not so bad either.

Tom said...

Is it Sweet Cicely? There's many around here like this... but the trouble is there's many that look the same..

Sorry to hear you suffer from Migraine, I used to suffer terrible, as did my sister and Mother... mine stopped overnight.
I have high blood pressure... amongst other things.. the medication I take for that as stopped my migraines completely... My migraines at times layed me up, I would have to be in the dark and complete quietness at times... now it is rare if I get a head ache..

Lily Hydrangea said...

this sure is wild! I think that tall one with the white on top looks just like a weed that grows in my backyard.

Pietro said...

Very attractive view!
What a luxuriant green there.

alicesg said...

Wow the greenery is so rich over there. Lovely.

Olivier said...

on a l'impression d'ĂȘtre tout petit dans cette foret, belle photo
they have impression to be very small in this drill, nice photograph

mrsnesbitt said...

Definately an elder tree there, white flowers will eventually become dark red berries...wine material! lol!

BarkerBitesBack said...

I know the white ones are Yarrow, Cowslip is yellow.

LadyFi said...

We have loads of those plants over here too!

Hope you are now feeling better.

Reader Wil said...

Well, Triffids?? No, definitely no!. Wasn't the Isle of Man the only safe place for people, where the triffids couldn't come? Oh no, it was the Isle of Wight! But the tall plant with the white flowers could be a dangerous plant and cause a severe rash if you touch it. If it is the hogweed or cow parsnip. You'd better leave it alone. Thanks for sharing this beautiful spot!

Baruch said...

Have no idea but it does look pretty and green :)

Mo said...

I think it is yarrow. (taller than cows parsley). Hope you are over the migraine now. we missed you.

Marie Reed said...

I'll play it safe too and say that I see a few tufts of grass:)

Ken said...

I see a lot of green and a little blue. Don't they maintain these fields?

Swarna said...

This kind of overgrowth is welcome any time!

Priyanka Khot said...

it seems rains are visiting everyone but us mortals in Delhi. :-( Our trees are also begging for water these days.

hope you are feeling better now.

Wren said...

A somewhat different, but equally enjoyable look at your world.

PS I would have said Queen Anne's Lace for the white flowers as well.

Jim K said...

I cant name any. I hope your migraine is gone, I think I caught it.

Arija said...

I probably could but it is too late in the day.
I like the overgrown effect, it reminds me of my garden.
Hope your head clears.

Buck said...

Welcome back!

I'm voting for Queen Anne's Lace as well. Also called wild carrot - OK to eat when very young but they quickly get bitter as they get older.

Love the wild places! We've had quite a bit of rain here as well so many of our open spaces are looking like this.

Silwy said...

Dear Baboo,
overgrown plot of land is something natural what I like to see because urban people (like me)everyday are surrounded by concrete....do not know the names

Pagan Sphinx said...

Queen Ann's Lace? Love that blue sky above all the overgrown green.

Halcyon said...

Not sure what the plant is, but it makes a nice wildflower.

I hope your migraines don't come back. We are finally getting some rain here - but I know what you mean about the storms. I don't like it when the rain comes with high winds.

Mojo said...

You're kidding right? Me? The Lord and Sovereign of the Botanically Challenged? Playing Name that Plant?

I'm thinkin' not. they sure are pretty though.

Babooshka said...

BarkerBitesBack-Right again of course, it's common yarrow.

Unseen Rajasthan said...

Sorry no Idea about name but definitely beautiful and lovely !!Do check my another blog also i.e.Unseen Rajasthan

Greensboro Daily Photo said...

Thanks for the visit to Greensboro Daily. Yes, we grow blueberries. If you have the climate at all for them, I suggest your giving them a try. Great bushes, green in spring and summer, reddish in the fall, and, OH, the fruit is wonderful. Glad you've gotten past your headache.

The path is fabulous! Makes us want to stroll and explore. Will need to see what a Triffid is!

mononeil said...

My god, go in there and you might never come out again. Green and blue sky's to magic colours .

Carolyn said...

The white one in forground I blieve is Queen Anne's Lace, it is delicate like lace and has a purple staiman in the centre. If not QAL then yarrow. Great photo and nice post. Hope you're feeling better.

Marja said...

ha ha I am with you I recognise the same I love ferns There are heaps of them over here

Sally in WA said...

I think I need to visit that place after my migraines. Looks soothing.

Monica said...

I am the worst person to ask about plant names. However, I can appreciate their beauty.

Thank you for visiting my blog, the time you took to comment was appreciated.

Is it maybe wild carrot?
Have a nice weekend!

Shutterspy said...

That tall plant with the thick stem and white flowers might be giant hogweed, in which case don't touch it! Of course it might just look tall because of the angle you took the photo at and it might be some other kind of hogweed.
