Sunday Picture Post: Dune Community

I’ve already posted several of the photos I took back in May when I walked along the river Bure, through Bure Park, and onto the dunes… now I give you my shots of the wildflowers there (those not trodden by too many feet!)

Devilsbit Scabious? Or Sheepsbit?: 18 May 2020

Tiny plant, easily missed. But whose ‘bit’ is it? It’s one I’ve never been absolutely sure on.

Sea Holly: 18 May 2020

Beware with bare feet. Those leaves are prickly.

Birdsfoot Trefoil: 18 May 2020

This trefoil has many regional names. The one I like best is Egg and Bacon.

Tree Lupin: 18 May 202

A total misnomer. As you can see, it’s not a tree, though it can grow to a shrubby 6′. It’s a common sight on the dunes of Norfolk and Suffolk

    Another group of beautiful wild flowers. Thank you.
    I love the yellow and so The Lupin most.
    Holly’s such a nice name yet always prickly. Very hardy.

  3. A nice selection. I thought the “tre” in trefoil stands for three, and the name means three sections or three petals?

  6. Do you seek out these flowers, or is England just like this all the time?
