pond things

Typha minima – the “Baby Bullrush” has reached its full height of about 60cm in my pond, and is starting into flower. The yellowy-green male flowers at the top will fade and blow away in due course, while the brown female inflorescence forms the familiar bullrush seed mass.

Sadly, the two red damselflies were disturbed by the camera and refused to stay in shot!
