Hairy willowherb is in full bloom at the minute and it's lovely to see it growing in very urban settings, such as here next to a wall in the Meadows area of Edinburgh. It's one of the flowers that first got me really interested in
Botany. When I first saw this plant (on a family holiday, in Cornwall I
think) I thought it was incredibly beautiful and then realised it wasn't
in the flower book I had so I rushed out to buy another flower book!
(You can see a closer photo of the flowers in this earlier blogpost).
I'm taking part in 100DaysofNature, by posting a photo of nature every day. Not all the photos will appear in this blog, but all of them will be on my Flickr page and shared through my Twitter and Facebook accounts.
