A Lay-by

Recently Neil reported Tellima grandiflora (Fringecups) as a garden throw-out from a lay-by in Glen Varragill and said there were other things in the discard pile too. On my way back from Geary I had a look and indeed there were, the most interesting of which is Geranium pyrenaicum (Hedgerow Crane’s-bill).

But there were also local weeds like Arabidopsis thaliana (Thale Cress) and Veronica arvensis (Wall Speedwell). These will presumably not survive for many winters out there.
