The head of Lud Brook is transformed into a magical green and gold world of spearwort, bog asphodel, sphagnum moss and sundew, with tiny frogs hopping here and there.
Delicate bog pimpernel nestles among the grass and sphagnum,
with bright red patches of insect-eating round-leaved sundew
Other tiny gems are eyebrights, tormentil and heath milkwort beside the water
and water crowfoot, marsh st. John’s wort and lesser spearwort in the water
On slightly drier ground, cross-leaved heath and mouse-ear hawkweed:
Larger plants include foxgloves and marsh thistles in pink and white forms
