Odd sort of day at work - the embankment that stops unwelcome "visitors" getting onto the grasslands was improved today, resulting in the clearing of a lot of teasel and willowherb. Hopefully this will have already seeded the ground however and there will be a recovery next year.
There's not much left in flower, a bit of hairy willow herb, a few thistles, the pennyroyal - and onesolitary clump of teasel upon which red tailed bumbles were feeding.
The willow herb has seeded into the most amazing fractal like designs, a sort of higher dimensional geometry, a fractal pattern that goes on forever no matter how much you magnify it.
Nature is maths, and maths is nature.
