Flowers in November
November starts off with glorious autumn colour but wet days can feel a bit gloomy in this month. Birds are quiet, except for corvids, insects are mostly in their winter quarters or dead from the cold, and the plants are looking a little tired.
But fortunately, even now, there are wild flowers to enjoy. This week I found a late ragwort still providing pollen for any surviving insects.
White dead nettles still in flower
And good old hogweed which seems to be in flower all through the year.
