It was about time I had another go at WildflowerHour’s current challenge: ‘our weekly winter challenge is #thewinter10 which is to find ten different wild flowers in bloom each week. Once you’ve found them, work out what they are, and post them for the rest of us to see.’
So, on Thursday’s walk, though I was really looking for birds, I also remembered to cast my eyes downwards for flowers. And, on one relatively short stretch along the western edge of Cardiff Bay, I found my ten: Creeping buttercup (I think). a Dandelion species, Nipplewort, Petty spurge, possibly Common mouse-ear, Red dead nettle, Groundsel, Sweet meadow grass, Gorse, and Red clover.
