I fell asleep amid the flowers

Catton Park

The clear sky to cloud ratio was very much reversed today with, as my mother would have said, just enough blue to make a cat a pair of trousers.

The warm unbroken sunshine of the past week or so has finally given way to much cooler air and the promise of some, but not a lot of, much needed rain in the days ahead.

Even on the cloudiest of days Catton Park can be a wonderful place for great discoveries and mystery.

Today I focussed on the wildflowers.

Below is a gallery of those I saw today. If anyone can help me identify the last one I would be very grateful. You can leave a comment below.

I wish had had the sort of brain that could remember all the names. Sadly this isn’t the case, which is why I’ve spent the best part of a two hours looking them up!

Thanks to a couple of people on Twitter who identified the mystery plant as being Sorrel. You can read a little more about it on my following post.
