We were exploring Hevingham Park and noticed about 20 large fern plants in an open area of the woodland . Last year's fronds were dying off and from the center of the crown, the new fronds were unfurling.
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!
It was lovely to see Drooping Star-of-Bethlehem alongside the path to St Andrew's Church in Eaton, especially as last Spring it was disturbed by the cutting back of the Lime trees.
We spotted a small patch of Glory-of-the-snow growing amongst Cow Parsley Anthriscus sylvestris on the top of a steep roadside bank alongside an agricultural field. It was around 50 meters from the nearest house on Pit Street in Lower Southrepps.
Hemispheric liverwort Reboulia hemisphaerica is quite frequent on steep roadside banks in this area.
We spotted a lonely plant on a roadside verge on Stump Cross Lane in Southrepps parish at least 100m from habitation.
We spotted a small patch of Coltsfoot in a strip of wet woodland on the northwestern edge of Southrepps parish. The flower shoots were emerging out of the woodland floor and the flowers just beginning to open.
We found Viola odorata f. lilacina in a grassy area in Rollesby and on edge of woodland just north of Acle.
We found Annual Buttonweed in a roadside gutter in urban Rollesby. This was a rather unexpected find, as there have only been 78 previous records of this plant for the UK, and only 2 from Norfolk, for Kelling Heath Caravan Park and an urban location in North Walsham.
