More pairs

It's the pink and white theme again.

These are the bindweeds.

First, the white one. Hedge bindweed is the large flowering creeper which climbs up through the nettles, thistles and other sturdy plants.


Then there is the pink version.

This is field bindweed. It is a much more delicate plant than its white relative. The flowers are much smaller. The plant creeps over the ground and tends to hide among the long grasses in the open field.

Sorry - this one is only half of a pair!

There is a patch of white campion  near the end of the wood walk.

The other half of the pair is of course red campion. It was flowering a few weeks ago near the bypass but it was gone before I took a picture!

Where do I Walk?

Mainly in a fairly compact area on the north-east side of Steyning in West Sussex, UK.
