It's wilder than you might think.

Wild about Wildflowers:

We were lucky enough to have recently attended the National Trust for Scotlands wildflower workshop near Comrie in Perthshire. NTS staff from across Scotland got together to learn about the identification of wildflowers, grasses, sedges and rushes, and to discuss if the ligules were longer on rough stalked meadow grass or smooth stalked meadow grass.

One of my favorite plants of the day was this fragrant orchid.
