Despite putting a lot of effort into learning plants last summer, I still feel very 'green around the gills' so I may very well have misidentified some of these. Spent a bit of time looking down at the ground after work. Musk Stork's-bill is a new one, as is Common Whitlowgrass - lovely splashes of colour on a grey winter day, and some species flowering that I wasn't really expecting.
I'm not sure about this one.
Nice to see some flowers again. Down here Musk Storksbill has been spreading quite a lot on verges.ReplyDelete
Hi Neil - is that because of salt or type of soil? All the best. MattReplyDelete
Hi Matt- I don't think it's because of the salt. I wonder whether the seeds get carried by foot travel, animal fur & perhaps even by mowing gangs moving from site to site? Don't think it's particularly a halophyte.ReplyDelete
