A Story to Tell

Saturday, May 27th 2017

Out on the wetland checking for flowers and Adder's Tongue Fern, I noticed a toad, as Christine knelt to check a leaf.  I was just about to pick up this toad when I realised that toads are not furry!

We watched and it kept its head tucked in the grass, obviously it couldn't be seen if its head was hidden.  It then decided it would head off and ran across the path where it encountered my pup's tail.  Initially the vole thought this would be a good place to rest and curl up, but then thought better of it and continued its journey across the path and into more vegetation.

After this interlude we continued on our way checking for flowers.  Common Milkwort has spread on the wetland but we could find no more than one clump on the moorland.

Lousewort is also to be found on the wetland and moorland.

Dog Daisies are open along Dog Daisy Avenue - where else would they be?

In the back garden, Daisy, but this one tinged with pink.
