Holly and ivy for Christmas
and lots of new growth in the hedgerow, notably cow parsley, goose grass (cleavers), and shining cranesbill.
Spotted medick leaves are easier to see now than in summer.
New flowers of lesser periwinkle, dog’s mercury, winter heliotrope and pink purslane
alongside a few scattered flowers of shining cranesbill, rough chervil, nipplewort, red campion, herb robert, wood sage, groundsel and common field speedwell.
Daisies in the short turf at Moorhaven look as fresh as in summer
but the hedges are wintery.
