Each month I select one wildflower from Poitou-Charentes and write something about it and present you with some photos. Sometimes it will be a common flower which you might easilly see as you drive about the department, some months it may be a bit of a rarity. In some months like during the winter it will be whatever I can find that is in flower.
Here is a list of flowers for 2012/2013/2014 and you can click onto each one to see what I have said about it.
