Seeing the Changes 190

An interesting fungus (actually an early stage of Dryad's saddle or Polyporus squamosus) was growing on a log in Clyne and, in Gowerton, there was a patch of Yellow archangel (Lamiastrum galeobdalon). In Bynea, the first Ox-eye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) was peeping out. In the cycle path areas that had been blocked for a week between Bynea and Penclacwydd, there was English scurvy grass (Cochlearia anglica), Charlock (Sinapis arvensis), White clover (Trifolium repens), Silverweed (Potentilla anserina) and Red campion (Silene dioica) all in flower. In Swansea, the Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastaneum) and the Beech (Fagus sylvatica) are firmly in flower.
