At first I thought Cantebrury Bells then I thought Hair Bells.


Hair Bells I think.


Yes, Harebells - although most people seem to think that they are bluebells!!

Now what's the rod??

Enjoyed a lovely day on the wee river Lyne - A tributary of the Upper Tweed.

The banks were adorned with Woundwort and the occasional clump of Great Willowherb --
Now, I'm sure about the Woundwort, but may need some confirmation of the willowherb.

It is a strange thing that these two flowers inhabit the banks of this river, but are nowhere to be seen on the banks of the Tweed, Ettrick or Yarrow!!

I think that this is great willowherb but I stand to be corrected - Strange that there is no sight of this on border streams or the tweed!


Woundwort - The banks of the river lyne are covered with these flowers at the moment, but same as above - no sign of them, as far as I can see on other border streams , including the Tweed. Strange !
