SH4637 : Craf y Geifr - Allium ursinum - Ramsons

taken 9 years ago, near to Llanystumdwy, Gwynedd, Great Britain

Craf y Geifr - Allium ursinum - Ramsons
Craf y Geifr - Allium ursinum - Ramsons
The first new growth of the season, just ready to be picked and made into soup with young nettle tops.
The English name is from the Anglo-Saxon hramsa. This plant, which grows in profusion in damp, sheltered places, has given a number of English place names, including Ramsey, Ramsdale and Ramsbottom.
The Welsh name means Goats' Garlic, a reflection of the smell which many people dislike. The Welsh name, too, is recalled in place names - Aber-craf, Dyffryn Crawnon, Llyn Crafnant.
