Still some plants in flower
Despite being a dry month there were still some species flowering
Rosebay Willowherb – Chamaenerion angustifolium
Wild Carrot – Daucus carota gall – Keifferia pericarpiicola
This was the first time I’d found these little pink balls on Wild Carrot, and I had to look up what they were.
Old mans beard – Clematis vitalba
Both the flowers and seed heads at once. Also known as Travellers Joy.
Common Fleabane – Pulicaria dysenterica
Tall Melilot – Melilotus altissimus
Perennial Sowthistle – Sonchus palustris
This yellow wildflower was very large and attractive and growing in the verge on my way home – it’s not one I’ve ID’d before.
Lady’s Bedstraw – Galium verum
On the grass bank just inside the cemetery entrance were three chalk grassland loving wildflowers altogether: Stemless Thistle Cirsium acaule, Mouse-ear Hawkweed Pilosella officinarum (the small rosettes of leaves) and Lady’s Bedstraw Galium verum.
