GBG excursion part 2

Here's a few more pics from the weekend:

Lathyrus nissolia (Grass Vetchling) which is surprisingly a member of the pea family.  The first photo shows a very young flower bud forming in the base of the leaf.

 Myosotis discolor (Changing Forget-me-not).  So called because the flowers change from a pale yellow to blue.

Ranunculus parviflorus (Small-flowered Buttercup).

Orobanche minor (Common Broomrape)

And finally a Dingy Skipper, of which there were many enjoying the sun!

  1. I've never knowingly seen the buttercup (probably been overlooking it).

    Make sure you send the Dingy records on to Dave :-)
