Ewyas Harold Common
Ewyas Harold Common
The western section of Ewyas Harold Common as it descends to St Martin's Well. In the foreground is a patch of Meadow Saffron or Autumn Crocus (Colchicum autumnale) in leaf - these will in due course die back, to be replaced by the flower stems (pink crocus-like) later in the year, hence a further alternative name, Naked Lady. They occur widely across the Common and are thought to originate from plantings by the monks of Dore Abbey.
