On Saturday, I was shown a colony of around 150 plants of Early sand-grass growing in lawns, gutters and pavement cracks on light sandy soils.
Mediterranean nettle growing at the base of a north-facing wall in Caister-on-Sea. A first for the county!
Drooping Star-Of-Bethlehem Ornithogalum nutans naturalised along the river Wensum in Norwich.
In the past few days, Jo has found two separate populations of this highly invasive alien plant close to the Wensum in Norwich. This is only the second record for VC 27 East Norfolk but seems to be spreading rapidly.
A long established patch of Snake's-head Fritillary growing alongside Goldilocks Buttercup in a private meadow in West Norfolk.
I went to a bit of fen that was cleared of scrub last year, and the extra light along the ditch edge has resulted in Tufted Sedges flourishing.
Our native daffodil is smaller and less showy than the garden varieties, but still very pretty. The petals are paler than the trumpet, narrow and slightly twisted. The leaves are grey-green, thin, long and flattened.
Spurge-laurel is very frequent on the Norfolk-Suffolk claylands, where it is typically spotted lurking on the banks of hedged ditches. This one was in a woodland between Holt and Fakenham in west Norfolk, on chalky clays in a dampish woodland.
Not a kangaroo to be seen in Great Ryburgh churchyard today, but there were a number of shrubs of this plant, bearing strange green fruit and apparently seeding quite freely about the churchyard.
Water Fern Azolla filiculoides is a pretty unmistakable plant with its feathery floating leaves. In autumn it becomes very obvious when the leaves turn a dull red colour.
