I managed to get across to the Queenstown Cemetery to resume my wild-flower watch this week.
I was expecting changes in the flowering species; in the past a week has made a big difference, this time it was a fortnight.
The cemetery seems to often greet me with something new just inside the entrance and this week was no exception.
I am pretty sure this is Trailing Speedwell (Veronica plebeia)
And from another angle.
This tiny fellow was on one flower, bear in mind that the flowers are about 12mm (1/2 inch) across
What do you think a cricket? A grasshopper?
There was a whole area of these the common name is “Tall Bluebell” (Wahlenbergia stricta) I am glad I got there this week, most of them were already wilting.
And another one.
There were also scattered Sprawling Bluebells (Wahlenbergia gracilis)
Which I have posted before
One of the flax lilies
And from another angle
These milkmaids (another lily) were happily holding their faces up to the sun.
