The name 'Burnet' is shared between the Burnet Moths (mentioned last Friday) and a group of plants called, Great Burnet and Salad Burnet. This morning, we found a stand of Great Burnet ().
About the same height, but far less colourful, is the second of this morning's plants. This is a grass known as Meadow Foxtail (Alopecurus pratensis). I fell in to the trap of thinking it was the very similar Timothy Grass when we saw it growing along the path, but closer inspection has revealed the mix-up.
