These are the plants I found on my walk on Sunday 22 November.

Yes, flowers. Your eyes do not deceive you. Variously known as Blackthorn, Sloe and Quickthorn… quick for its life and quick for its flowers, the first plum-species of the year (next year, that is)

And finally that other marshland lover, alder. Here seen are the cones, the fruits of the tree. Of old, these cones were used to yield a deep bloody red dye.
