Just like yesterday, most of the highlights were of alien/escaped species, but that is fine by me: Lesser Periwinkle, Sowbread, Asian Firethorn, Silver Lime, Balkan Spurge (Euphorbia tomentosa), Vibernum, Pampass-grass (Cortaderia selloana) and Mediterranean Spurge (E characias) were the pick of the bunch.
|Asian Firethorn (Pyracantha rogersiana) Identified by the hairless leaf stalks.|
|Silver Lime (Tilia tomentosa) And before you think my skill levels on identifying obscure winter trees has improved, I was shown this tree in the summer by Peter Wakeham.|
|Vibernum tinus, a remnant from a long lost garden or municipal planting?|
|Mediterranean Spurge (Euphorbia characias) I was pleased to find that this plant had survived|
|Mistletoe. Some hefty clumps in trees near Ewell East Station. I could fit in these (if I curled myself up!)|
|Winter Heliotrope. My personal winter favourite.|
