Down in the bog



Went down to the bog this morning, in one of the fields here in north Wales, to see what's about; accompanied by the dogs of course.




Whisky, Thistle and Ellie





Quite a few Harebell dotted around,







a few Meadow Browns and Ringlet butterflies,





and the thistles were attracting a lot of bees.



Bees with white bums







bees with orange bums










and bees with stripy bums.









But it was the plants in the bog I mainly wanted to look at, usually a good selection here. Some Cotton Grass growing in the middle, a couple of clumps of Ragged Robin and some Trefoil growing by the edge.


Masses of Marsh Bedstraw,








some Bog Asphodel









Cross-Leaved Heath











Marsh Willowherb










and a lot of Marsh Cinquefoil.








An enjoyable couple of hours, and the dogs enjoyed it too.
