Wild flowers of the Churchyards

At the Ingleton Overground Underground Festival in May 2013 we launched Doris Cairns' book of paintings of the wildflowers of the churchyards at Ingleton and Chapel le Dale.

The book is written in a lively style. There are stories and explanations as to how many of the flowers got their names, and about Latin meanings.
The book costs £15-00.

Here are pictures of the Launch.
Angela my friend said "I like the book and enjoyed the walk to see the flowers and your talk about flowers .. but I would like to have heard Why and How Doris came to write the book.."  I asked Doris.. but her answer is for another blog post.

Just enjoy the pictures of the launch here.

Looking at the book

In a walk round the churchyard we look at the young Sand-leek.
The blue rope has been positioned to protect it from mowing.

Doris looks at "Cuckoo Pint" from above

Now we are looking at the Cuckoo Pint  from above -
see the Ingleton Viaduct in the background.

Which buttercup is this?
Sepals pointing down - yes it's Bulbous Buttercup.
Copies of the book are available in the church and in Curlew Crafts, Inleton
