Allium ursinum, Sinnington Dale, North Yorkshire
This astonishing sight went on for the best part of 500 metres - there must have been millions (if not tens of millions) of individual flowers.

Agreed
a particular favourite is home-made ricotta (or goat's cheese) and ramsons ravioli with a fresh tomato sauce and some shavings of pecorino cheese . . .

... on the veranda with a crisp Pinot Grigio 8-)

I also prefer pecorino to parmesan.

We have (or rather had) similar great displays of Ransoms although we have a bit of a problem with Petasites spp which appear in the same habitat. At least Ramsons have the decency to later wither back and allow other flora to grow.
