Hogweed

Spotted this week at Filnore Woods.  These Hogweed plants can go on flowering right into winter.   Although they are very attractive to look at, their perfume is .  .  .  errrm .  .  .  unusual.  Like something from a farmyard.


Even when the flowers have died, the seedheads command attention, like sculptures, as seen below against a dark backdrop of hawthorn. .


So many seeds per plant.  This is why we have so much of the stuff.
