July Reeds

Oops, it’s August and I forgot to post pics of the July reeds, but I did take these photos in July, honest gov!

They had got much greener.

Strong diagonals:

Less of the wave like effect.  Or maybe I had to stand on tiptoe to see it…

This month I noticed the plants that grew next to (and above) the reeds much more:

Like this rose bay willow herb.

sorrel in flower

And sorrel.

yellow snail on reed leaf

And what was living on them!

May Reeds

May reeds very dry looking

Very dead looking on the tops this month….

new growth of this year's reeds

But quite a lot of green too, foreshadowing this year’s growth…

may reeds

It still reminds me of waves

May reeds with new spears poking up out of the ground
