|Knotted Pearlwort Sagina nodosa|
|Bloody Crane's-bill Geranium sanguineum|
|Green Spleenwort Asplenium viride|
Not new for me but I haven't seen it for many years and had to look up what it was as I had no idea initially:
|Grass-of-Parnassus Parnassia palustris|
The flower in the background of the photo above was a particular highlight though. I had written off any chances of seeing Bird's-eye Primrose as the books say it flowers in May and June and the fact that most flowers seemed to have gone over didn't increase my expectations but there were loads of them. No idea why this species should buck the trend, maybe the books are wrong, not that I'm complaining on this occasion.
|Bird's-eye Primrose Primula farinosa|
The roadside verges in the area had frequent clumps of Giant Bellflower.
|Giant Bellflower Campanula latifolia|
Finally, a mystery object. Anyone got any ideas what this is?
