To day I wanted to catch up on my wild flowers,
It was not till I got home that I realised I had gone on the very exact day 29th June a year ago !
There were many last year I could not name, but with the help of iSpot I have been going through my list of NEED TO I.D (it's a long list)
Like all things in nature your first few discovery's are easy to name then you dig a little deeper and find that Yellow flower looks like ten other Yellow flower !
For that very reason they are having the same trouble on iSpot,
Yesterday 3 people named this flower as Hoary Ragwort
and to day 2 people say it's Marsh Ragwort.
|Marsh Ragwort (Senecio aquaticus)|
This next "yellow flower" from the Daisy family looks like all the other ones too..
|Common Catsear (Hypochaeris radicate)|
Hopefully Iv'e managed to name the rest right, if not let me know..
This is the little Beck that runs through the field and ends up running through the Park were most of my time is spent.
Along here good numbers of bog loving plants can be found.
The meadow looked stunning in the sun
|Garden Grass-veneer (Chrysoteuchia culmella) (1/7/14)|
As I walked through the grass I was disturbing many moths and insects, the Swifts were loving this, how they managed to get so close without hitting me, I don't know but it was simply
There was good number of Meadow Browns
And lots of these flies which I think are Snipe Fly's,
a stunning fly close up.
There were masses of Meadow Vetchling which is good for all the Butterflies
But this is the main reason I had gone to day, last year this plant..
Common Valerian (Veleriana officinals)
was one of my favourite flowers and it just reminds me of hot sunny days.
They have grown well this year, this area is also a good place for Skippers..
just managed to see the one
Back over the Beck I stopped to admire the Foxgloves
