17th June


Enniskillen College was my daughter's graduation.


Heavy rain early on, dry later.


This Willowherb is everywhere, nowadays. It's American Willowherb - Epilobium ciliatum.

This young Oak tree is clearly struggling - the leaves are stunted and hardly open at all. I wonder if the large number of galls (I estimated over 200 on a 3-metre tall sapling) have anything to do with it.


Navelwort - Umbilicus rupestris - is still on my list of favourite flowers. They look like tiny pale green Foxgloves. Each flower about 12mm long as shown.
