A lovely day for a walk to day.  As we will not be having a walk tomorrow (other things to do), we thought a longer walk would be the thing.  So we set out for a 6.5 mile walk around Shipley Hill, Mapperley Reservoir and Village before returning via the old West Hallam Colliery site.  Just a few pics from our wanderings.  Firstly, the Biting Stonecrop (Sedum acre).  'Mats' of which are carpeting the sides of the pathways on parts of our walk.
Close to the Stonecrops are to be found several Evening Primroses (Oenothera biennis).
All the flowers today, are yellow and the final one is a Common Ragwort (Senecio jacobaea).  These plants are being devoured by the caterpillars of Cinnabar Moths (Tyria jacobaeae).
