Wildflowers, Broad Chalke
Ox Eye Daisy and Meadow Cranesbill grow along the verge near the Church.
The name daisy is derived from 'day's eye', a reference to the fact that the flower opens wide during the day, and closes up again at night. Daisies are part of a much larger group of plants called the Compositae, or composite flower, because each bloom is made up of dozens of tiny florets.
One of the loveliest of wild flowers, meadow cranesbill is found in great abundance in the south of England. The flowers are usually blue, and often a very deep blue on chalky soil, but pink and even white are sometimes seen.
