20th June


Original Hedgerow, because I was expecting one or two flowering plants to be ready. I wasn't disappointed.


Occasional sunny periods in a very wet day.


The Nipplewort is another yellow daisy. It's one of the few that doesn't make a seed 'clock'. Flower about 12 mm across.

This Silver Ground Carpet moth landed under the fern as I passed. It probably thought it was hidden. It wasn't. So I suppose this is a bug's-eye view of a moth.


Yet another soldier beetle - this time Cantharis pellucida.


This Marsh Cinquefoil is one of the flowers I expected to see. I find it hard to believe that this is related to Tormentil and Silverweed.

Here's another of my favourite flowers - the Tutsan. Other close relatives of the St. John's Wort family are very close to flowering, too.


The heady scent of the Meadowsweet announced the arrival of the delicate flowers.

The Honeysuckle has been open for a few days, now, but this is the first time I've had a safe opportunity for a photograph.


This little group of Psathyrella mushrooms nestled neatly in the grass verge. Spores oval, dark brown.
