I had to work to-day, until 1400. So, I went for a walk by the canal, which is on my way home. I didn't want to waste a second of a gorgeous day by going home to get changed.
It was great to feel the wind in my hair, and the sun on my face. Oh, and I got to play with my new lens. 😃
Wild Hyacinth - Fuath-mhuc - Hyacinthoides non-scripta
It is towards the end of the season for Hyacinths, but they still provide a splash of colour.
There were also lots of Bugles
Bugle - Glasair Choille - Ajuga reptans
Interestingly, the Bugles all had a different shape from the ones in my garden. I don't know if this was due to different growing conditions or that they were a different variety. These flowers are one of my favourites.
A wee Germander Speedwell
(Nuallach - Veronica chamaedrys) also sneaked into the photo.
There were many more wildflowers along the canal banks, because the grass hasn't been cut for weeks (possibly not at all, this year). This is due to the coronavirus Lockdown. See, every cloud has a silver lining. Consequently, I saw, and heard, many happy bumblebees to-day.
I actually think the verges look nicer, too. They are more natural, rather than manicured.
I'm off to the beach, to-morrow.
