Found this on Wiki....... "The common name cowslip may derive from the old English for cow dung, probably because the plant was often found growing amongst the manure in cow pastures. An alternative derivation simply refers to slippery or boggy ground; again, a typical habitat for this plant"
Gorgeous! I remember when Monty had blue muscari and orange cowslip on his display table (last year?) and I absolutely loved that orange cowslip. Actually had a look for one a garden shop earlier today but they only had the 'boring' yellow ones 😂
