Some lovely wild Angelica spotted on our flower workshop this morning. This plant loves wetland and attracts lots of insects like these Soldier Beetles pictured. It's name Angelica means angelic which may have been inspired by its white flowers. #flowers #flowerstagram #angelic #angelica #umbellifer #white #purewhite #plants #plantsofinstagram #workshop #botany #exploring #kinson #kinsoncommon #heathland #collegues #bog #bournemouth
