  1. I don’t remember ever seeing this plant before despite it having the name vulgaris. But it has pretty yellow flowers so I don’t mind sharing a name with it!.

    1. There’s some along the Lambrok Tributary, where the willows were pollarded and the plant I photographed for today’s post is at the top of Kestrel field near the ditch; it really does like to have damp feet.
