My story

[p]I'm going on a wildflower hunt to raise money for Youth Talk, a fantastic charity which provides counselling for young people in distress. I'm going to see how many wildflowers I can find in my local area within seven days; I'm hoping to find between 30 and 50 flowers, and I'll share photos of them on Instagram, so you can watch the hunt as it unfolds. [/p][p]A counselling session costs around £50 to provide. Please sponsor me per flower or in whatever way you prefer, and help Youth Talk to help more young people![/p][p]Update 10th June: See the flowers (and a few extras) on Instagram at [url=][/url] or on Dropbox at [url=][/url] (this replaces the original Google link).[/p][p]Update 15th June: The hunt has ended, with 79 flowers found ; all uploaded to Dropbox but I still need to add some to Instagram. I've reached half my target so far, but some people offered to sponsor me per flower and have been waiting for the final count. It would be wonderful to get to my target or a bit over - if we could make it to £550 or £600, that would pretty much pay for a complete course of counselling for a young person (the average is around 11 or 12 sessions); alternatively it would provide 11 or 12 young people with an initial session which gives them hope that things can get better for them. Thank you so much for all the generous donations![/p]

I haven't finished catching up with all the flowers you saw yet. How about 2 for £1! What a lovely way to raise money and learn some more plant names.

Hi Margaret, Because of recent family crises, I have enjoyed only a necessarily-attenuated glimpse of your lovely photos and comments. (What defines a wild flower as wild, I've always wondered?) How about a collated summary published online...?
