Apart from the Yellow Iris I'm struggling here. Red Clover possibly. White Yarrow maybe. Hawkbit bottom right?
Could someone who knows please help.

Not sure if I can name them all for you Poet, but I'll have a go:
Yellow Flag Iris. Red Clover.
Pignut. Meadow Buttercup.

Looks like you could be right there Phil. Pignut eh. Never heard of that one before but then I'm still a bit of a newjack to the game. A little wild botany is a fine way to enhance a walk and what wonderful names they have. Thanks for the info.

Not much of an expert myself, Poet, and despite our slight differences in making up the quartet, your four must enjoy favouritism. I found the white flower most difficult to attach a name to as there are so many with carrot-like leaves to choose from - Cow Parsley was my second choice for Harry's third section. And what about the possibility of the previously unmentioned yet wonderfully-named Sweet Cicely appearing in one of your future rhymes - Your decision of course, but, please, get that quill going again.

Swing low Sweet Cicely
Growing where I tarry or roam,
Swing low Sweet Cicely
Are you one of Harry's wild grown?

A great response to my query Poet; Your fine and dandy rhyme 'Sweet Cicely'. Thanks.

That's a bit of a stretch Poet. Do I sense American subtlety

I can hear the Twickenham crowd already Ken..
Maybe, Sweet Cicely...
