15th June


Highest local point.


More or less in cloud all day.

This Common Butterwort has set seed, now. Notice that the sticky leaves have captured a good number of midges, etc. (Not enough, however - I was being eaten alive as I took this picture)



First sight of the Yellow Rattle. The photo shows the interesting structure of the leaves.


I showed the Salmonberry flowers earlier in the year. This is a plant introduced  to give cover and feeding for game birds. Having tasted this berry, I'm going to leave them to the birds. Harsh and bitter.


A nice little picture of the seedhead of the Herb Bennet with water droplets. This point was actually in cloud as I took the photos.


And lastly a little shot of the flowers of the New Zealand Willowherb. They're rarely as open as this.
