Flora and a Fauna!

Creeping Thistle, I think, although it's not a bit thistley except for the appearance of the flower.

Ladies Bedstraw with raindrops. There are a lot of superstitions associated with this plant.

Coltsfoot seedhead, much fluffier than dandelions. My girls used to call them 'Wind Fairies' when the breeze caught them.

Meadowsweet, which I think is so pretty. Great clouds of it grow along our laneway.

...and a snail- boy! I had trouble running to photograph him before he zoomed off!!!

Anyone wishing to view this biodiversity is welcome to visit my garden anytime they like!!
I call it biodiversity...the Hub calls them weeds. It all depends on your view point!
