Week In Focus #27

Edible Wild Garlic

This is picture #27 of a weekly Photo Challenge that I set myself – there is no particular theme. The idea behind the challenge is to get myself outside into the Cumbrian countryside, at least once a week.

  • This week’s photo is from a recent walk to Longlands Lake. Large swathes of land around the lake are home to wild Garlic. The smell was amazing!

Allium ursinum, known as wild garlic, ramsons, buckrams, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek or bear’s garlic, is a bulbous perennial flowering plant in the lily family Amaryllidaceae. It is a wild relative of onion, native to Europe and Asia, where it grows in moist woodland. The leaves of wild garlic are edible.
