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
and a lot of Marsh Cinquefoil.
An enjoyable couple of hours, and the dogs enjoyed it too.
