100 Wild Flowers

Yellow Corydalis (Pseudofumaria lutea) – This low-growing plant with its golden yellow flowers is the 100th species to be added to A nature Journey. A non-native species originally from the Alps, I discovered it growing from a local canal bridge. It likes to grow between the degraded mortar in old walls, or between the cracks and paving. Naturally, it grows between limestone rocks.

You are more than welcome to visit my Wild Flowers page, where you may find all 100 featured species with photographs and text.

    1. Many thanks, Sandra! 🙂 I have a thing for very old walls as well as my interest in nature. They can hold a lot of history, which I love 🙂

  2. My mother had this in her garden at the house where I grew up. On the island where we have our summer cottage, Pale Corydalis (Corydalis sempervirens), a native species with pink flowers, grows quite happily in tiny crevices in the rock.

  3. Lovely (and I really need you to come over to Australia and set up my photo library online, Pete, yours, which I’ve just viewed is superb. Both in layout, descriptions and images).

    1. Many thanks, Vicki. My layouts is what converted me to use the Gutenberg Blocks rather than the Classic WordPress Editor. Creating columns is such a breeze now, and shuffling elements around is so easy. I use ‘pages’ for these, rather than ‘posts’, and use them minus the side bar. You might want to give it a try with a sample page. It has helped me order and document more than 930 species now.

      1. I’ll have to check this out, Pete. Your website is much more suited to what I originally wanted to do with all my bird and flower photos. I’ll follow your advice and see if I can set up something similar.


  4. Everyone around here is posting gorgeous flowers photos, which inspire me to paint but this birds project is never ending 😆 beautiful photos Pete!
