The pictures above show Ransoms or Ramsons (Allium ursinum) – a kind of wild garlic. My neighbour upstairs uses the leaves to wrap parcels of stuffed steamed rice; other people use them for soups or to make pesto. The white starry flowers look pretty against the broad glossy leaves, and they often occur en masse in the shade beneath trees in Spring. They were amongst the first flowers to greet villagers out for a walk from the beginning of the coronavirus lockdown in March, at about the same time or shortly after the bluebells started blooming. Both kinds of flowers share the same habitat and are still flowering although a bit past their best now.
