Romeo and Juliet, true love?

Cowslips (Primula veris)
A native plant, its name comes from the Old English cūslyppe meaning cow dung, probably because the plant was often found growing amongst the manure in cow pastures! The flowers were used to flavour vinegar and in salads. Medicinally, the flowers were believed to make an excellent ointment to treat wrinkles.
