Goodness, that's a pretty wonderful Latin name, isn't it, and who would believe that hogweed was this pretty?
Had a beautiful walk today and found this out St Cross way in the watermeadows. And I thought I was about due for another wildflower. The challenge is going to be to get one (not already blipped this year) for November and December as well, so the full year is covered.
Apart from that, I bumped into one of my nicest friends, had my hair done and raked quantities of leaves. And that's me done.
Many thanks to BikerBear for continuing to host this challenge. And have a happy Friday night, all xx
