Thursday 21 May

What started out a wet dismal morning turned into a wonderful day, we immediately started looking for plants.
We began in Clitheroe Castle's grounds, then around the streets and back alleys. Then we had our lunch at Brungerley Park near the bridge, we did part of the sculpture trail and then onto Cross Hill quarry.
Common Milkwort
This is Giant Knotweed x Japanese Knotweed - sometimes called Connolly's knotweed.
French Sorrel
Gooseberry growing at the side of the river.
Hoary Plantain
Hybrid Aven - cross between Water Aven & Wood Aven (Herb Bennet)
Pendulous Sedge growing in a back street.
Thyme-leaved Sandwort
Water Aven
Wild Strawberry
Bulbous Buttercup
A really good day, considering the rain was coming down like stair rods on the way up. Never did another drop after I got there.
