Hi

I saw these in an old garden in East Anglia, UK. The garden was unmanaged and had become dominated by scattered scrub / woodland. The canopy had closed in and the understory, which included these, appeared sparse mosses and some nettles etc. I have a couple of thoughts on what they may be, but was looking for some ideas.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

The first image looks like it contains a bunch of Forget-Me-Not seedlings (Myosotis sp.), with some English Ivy (Hedera helix) weaving in amongst them.

The second image looks like emerging foliage from some member of Liliaceae, likely a minor bulb such as Siberian Squill (Scilla siberica) or one of the hyacinth types.

Hi

Many thanks for your reply!

I have since had some help from another forum and we all agree on the Forget - Me- Nots. It seems that the other photo is Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta). Even though I don't think you have these in the states looks like you were pretty close!

Thanks again

Coggie
