A Few Flowers

Decided to take a bit more time this week, brushing up my plant identification. My patch (East Chevington ... mainly) goes from the beach through dune slack to reclaimed opencast. One small patch, within the opencast, was preserved due to the Lesser Butterfly Orchid.

I managed to ID about 100 species and at least 50 more were photographed hoping ID would be possible later. Next week I  plan to take a hand lens to look for some extra detail? Below is a selection of some of the common species (more to follow). [Let me know if the ID is incorrect ... always happy to be corrected.]
