A Bit of Botany

A couple of evenings ago I walked past this damp corner of a field that lies next to the Burnieshed Burn. the field is called 'Dance Naked'.

In the foreground is some water cress. Further away and to the right of the photo is a crowfoot and furthest away is a bank of buttercups.

This is the crowfoot closer up.

The next photograph shows some purple irises that are growing in the pond/swamp to the east of the drive. This area was once a wild garden. Dogwood, Turk's cap lilies, Monkshood and various other garden plants grew there. With the inundation most of the plants mentioned have disappeared, but the irises have reappeared in this dry season.

And here, I think, is brooklime (Veronica beccabunga), which I found further up the ditch.
