A quick addendum to that last blog…
I just went for a walk around the other side of the bay, and was amazed (yes, again) by the milkwort growing in great big bunches. Well, OK, the milkwort itself is little and tiny, but I’ve never seen so much of it growing together before. Usually it’s just one or two flowers.
And I was also amazed by the butterwort plants growing down the path of a boggy little stream – the leaves have been evident for some time, but I swear there were no flowers yesterday. Today, they’ve all sprung tall, elegant blue-headed blooms.
Is that why we call it spring? (Though technically I suppose it’s summer, now…)
