There was lots of Vaccinium vitis-idaea (Cowberry or Lingonberry for those of you with Scandinavian connections) in fruit – often this is a shy fruiter in our area.

and on the tops quite a bit of the montane form of Solidago virgaurea (Goldenrod) which can be recorded as subsp. minuta though whether it retains these characteristics if transplanted to a less stressed environment, I do not know.
