Friday Flora: 7.10.16

Blooms bedazzle but at this time of year our admiring gaze turns to the crisping armature of wildflower seedhead and stem. Who needs garden sculptures when we have all these natural forms?

Dark tresses of Bladder rack seeweeds dry out between tides alongside the shingled gardens of yellow-horned poppies and bramble entanglements

burdock seedheads dessicate into umber pincushions but carex and grasses are turning green again after the dry summer

and what at first I first thought were tiny trapped insects, the camera revealed as seeds for next years’s flushing of Rosebay Willow herb – click to enlarge
