When I saw this vegetation theme my first thoughts were of what grows in my garden.
However when I saw the North Yorkshire Moors on our way to Whitby yesterday I knew I had to show sometime a bit wilder.
Less than 20yds from the main road from Teesside you could find yourself up to your neck in in a bracken bank.
|Bracken with hedge bindweed (belibine) flowers|
I wish now that I had some close-ups of the flowers of the bindweed which. in gardens, is regarded as a pest.
|More bracken and a single plant of Indian balsam (pink)|
The Indian balsam is another invasive species.
But the view that I found best included the plant that gives the open moor its purple colour at this time of year.
|Ferns with heather in the background|
Although there was vegetation visible at the top of the cliffs below Whitby Abbey
|Whitby Abbey (viewed from afar)|
it was this shot that got to me.
|Birds of a feather (a week too late)|
They would be more interested in fish than vegetation.
Don't let that stop you however, checking out the vegetation on view at Carmi's Thematic-photographic-308.
