Purple Flowers of Summer
Sunday, 11th August 2002, West Yorkshire
Purple and yellow are the predominant flower colours at the moment, purple in particular. In the marshy area managed as a wild flower meadow at Thornhill Park there are towers of purple loosestrife. On embankments, wasteground and verges
and spear thistle add various shades of purple but creeping thistle has now finished flowering and is releasing drifts of thistledown.
The wildlife highlight of the walk is a nuthatch flying out of the walnut tree in the park.
