Tuesday 20th May 2014 - Brookheys Covert

Water Violet (Tellima grandiflora)
Water Violet (Hottonia palustris)
A short visit to Brookheys Covert particularly to see the Water Violet (a member of the Primrose family), which was in full bloom.

Other flowers seen in the reserve included Creeping Buttercup and some Red Campion and Bluebells just about finshed flowering.

On the track nearby, was Cow Parsley, Russian Comfrey (stem not winged) and Meadow Buttercup with  the remains of Greater Stitchwort flowers.
