Although it’s the coastal paths that come most readily to mind when I think of our holidays at Towyn, walking along the lanes or across the fields is also delightful because the hedgerows are bright with a profusion of flowers. Great drifts of Purple Loosestrife and the wild thyme which is very common there, mint and willowherbs including this Rosebay Willowherb:
Of course this is a plant that you can probably find flowering all over Britain. I can certainly remember seeing it every summer on waste ground when I lived in Central Manchester. Many of the other flowers that I saw were also familiar from walks around home, but some were not.
Rest Harrow for example.
Or Lady’s Bed Straw.
Or this as yet unidentified flower. Any ideas?
