Monty flowers

Friend of Wild Monty Lois spotted a couple of excellent flowers the other day so I went to have a look this afternoon. Along the rainbow bridge at Fairlawn Road there were a couple of Moth Mullein plants. I usually see this attractive and quite uncommon flower on the railway cutting near the tunnel but I haven't seen it this year. Nearby there were some splendid Musk Mallow plants in flower. My thanks to Lois for her sightings. You can follow her excellent blog here. Other nice flowers included some Vervain, Common Poppy and Purple Toadflax.

At the station there was some Enchanter's Nightshade in flower and on the wall was a Sawfly species.
