Bird's-foot Clover. These minute flowers are pink-tinged. I spent an hour, after work, mooching around Sandy Bay where the turf is kept really short. Lots of species are in flower at the moment.
I'm not sure about this umbellifer. A striking-looking plant though. Growing at the back of the beach. Edit - Wild Carrot - thank you Dave!
I think I've finally found some Bithynian Vetch - none whatsoever in flower yet though.
Good to see Sea Rocket growing at the top of the beach again. Some white-flowered and some, like the above, with a lovely lilac hue.
Absolutely masses of Small-flowered Buttercups are growing around the caravans at Sandy Bay.
I misidentified Slender Trefoil at the weekend. Could this be it?
More Small-flowered Buttercup.
I think your umbellifer is going to be Wild Carrot?ReplyDelete
Ah - thanks Dave. I should know that one - my excuse is it has been a few months since I last saw any. Good to hear from you. All the very best. MattReplyDelete
I recently found many changing forget me nots growing in my front garden! I am Very pleased.ReplyDelete
Just to add to Dave's Carrot ID, it's probably the coastal subspecies gummifer.ReplyDelete
That looks much more like Slender Trefoil. You do have some fine plants there; we don't have Spring Squill in the south-east.
I'm going to the North Downs today in search of plants & my first Early Purple Orchids of the season, hopefully connect with Grizzled & Dingy skipper as well as Green Hairstreak, though have seen the first species this year. Maybe some herps under the tins?
Hi Neil - hope you had a good trip. No sniff of Green Hairstreaks down here yet. Have to travel to get the Skippers down here too. All the best. MattReplyDelete
