Friday 10 July

Took a few record photos of some plants on our walk but nothing worth posting.

Then a neighbour knocked on the door asking would I come and look at a plant that they had not planted.

Off I went with camera at the ready - it was Flowering Nutmeg - what a gift from the birds. It has been turning up in various places due to birds loving the berries it produces. It is sometimes called Himalayan Honeysuckle.
Leaves are in pairs.
New leaves
I look forward to finding one growing wild - hopefully in the Yarrow Valley.
