May Flowers

Friday, May 10th 2019

We have mentioned several times this year that we do not know the full impact the Beast from the East, followed by the hot dry summer, will have on the flora and fauna.  Looking back to May last year, several flowers were photographed, that as yet have not shown their faces this year.

Bogbean is a beautiful flower and the pond in the Scrapes is now flowering well.

Bugle is just beginning to flower.  Although winter cold kills the stems of this plant, wherever it has touched the ground and rooted a new plant is formed.

Walking around a pink/purple flower can be spotted through the new spring green vegetation.  This is Bitter Vetchling, which just to confuse things is also called Bitter Vetch, but it is not a vetch!  According to one source it is widespread but not common in Britain.
