Seeing the Changes 1320
















In the 26 days since I was allowed to run on tarmac surfaces, much has changed flower-wise on my regular 'running' route. Amongst the most notable appearances are the blooming of the alien Snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus) along with Pineapple mayweed (Chamomilia suaveolus) and Marsh willowherb (Epilobium palustre) in Loughor. In Bynea, high-lights included Thrift (Armeria maritima); Sea plantain (Plantago maritima); Greater plantain (Plantago major); Slender thistle (Carduus tenuifloris); Creeping thistle (Cirsium arvense); Black knapweed (Centaurea nigra); Biting stonecrop (Sedum acre); White melilot (Melilotus alba); Ribbed melilot (Melilotus officinalis); Red dead nettle (Lamnium purpureum); Ragged robin (Lychnis flos-cuculi); Large-flowered evening primrose (Oenothera erythrosepale) and Common figwort (Scrophularia canina).
