Nature table number three

This table is all about plants , grasses, rushes and sedges. All of them are narrow stemmed and often over looked . They are often grouped rather than specifically identified when we talk about them. Grass flowers are very complex and to identify a species a hand lens is often needed. I am going to post some identified common grasses over the next few weeks,this is part of a ‘learn new things’ mission I’m on.

Also on the table is the plantain because it also has narrow leaves and a flower that might be confused as a sedge.

Finally the very pretty Phacelia which I found for the first time this year.

Keep an eye out for som grass identification over the next couple of weeks.
