Here are a few pictures that I took of flora during our walk in the park earlier today:
The back field has a million little mushrooms poking their heads up from under the grass.
This is the seed head from Common Plantain.
The flowers of the Narrow-Leaved Plantain.
An awfully small blue flower. Look at the clover leaf for a size reference.
Flowering head of a Narrow-Leaved Plantain, and departing Hover-Fly.
Flowering head of a Narrow-Leaved Plantain. As above.
A 'Little Brown Mushroom', as they call them.
An awfully small yellow flower head. I don't think this is Pineapple Weed. But it might be.
Tiny purple flowerettes. This is small.
I don't know what this is, but it flowers from a creeping vine-like body.
Here it is again - closer up.
The leaves from a seedling Purple Sandtree Cherry tree.
I'm not sure what this is.
I pulled a burdock leaf out of the ground to show the purple Rhubard-like stalk. This is the first year growth of the biannual organism. In the second year, a central stalk grows high and develops the burs that stick to your clothes - hence the name BurDock
A small insect on a green leaf.
The seeds of Shepherds-Purse.
Not sure what this is - possibly the flowering head of Burdock.
Insect on a flower head.
Leaves of a Purple Sandtree Cheery seedling.
The amazing colours of lichen on a pine tree.
And finally - one last LBM - or "Little Brown Mushroom".
