Torr Head Wildflower Meadow

can you see any other flowers/plans in this photograph? Please leave a comment if you do.

We parked below the Coast Guard station, headed toward the height of Torr Head. I was stopped in my tracks by the hillside meadow wildflower profusion. 

Here are a few I identified, listed by common name: Bluebell, Daisy, Meadow Buttercup, Sea Campion, Yarrow.  We love daisies and buttercups around home.  We spotted Sea Campion on the Dingle Peninsula, as well.  Yarrow is common through Ireland.  I don’t recall seeing bluebells anywhere else. 

It was the bluebells in this photograph that clued me into why I took a photograph of the hillside.  The view north takes in coastal sheep pasture looking on a portion of North Channel and the Irish island Rathelin.

The web page I used for identification was . Great information and links to the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland with a distribution map.

  1. I am looking forward to seeing bluebells again in the early spring at a nearby nature park. They arrive in the shaded areas along a creek, but they don’t stick around in the late spring heat.
