A few Early Purple Orchids still hanging on although most had gone over.
Look closely...this one's got a surprise in store for any visitors!
One Common Twayblade was flowering early.
A few more common wildflowers, some of which I've never 'noticed' before. I've heard of them but hadn't knowingly seen them.
The very common Field Speedwell, always been one of my favourites, as kids we knew it as Bird's Eye.
Charlock or Field Mustard
I've never tried separating the Cranesbills before. This one's Dove's Foot Cranesbill.
It's exceptionally hairy!
Early Winter Cress
A new flower for me. It's fairly common but pretty inconspicuous, the flowers seen here are just 2-3mm long.
My first Wall of the season
Seen here on a step along the footpath.
It was lovely to see my first Common Blues of the year too.
Seen here on Germander Speedwell
...And here on Mouse-ear Hawkweed
They so deserve a better name than 'Common Blue'
