Bloody Crane's-bill - Geranium sanguineum

Hottentot-fig - Carpobrotus edulis

Smaller Tree-mallow - Malva pseudolavatera

Smaller Tree-mallow

White Mignonette - Reseda alba

Viper's-bugloss - Echium vulgare
Had a great afternoon on the coast at Tenby today. If you like a mixture of native and non-native plants this is a good place to visit. The Smaller Tree-mallow was everywhere, it has been known here since the 1940s. Only saw one plant of the White Mignonette and Viper's-bugloss was in a number of places on the cliffs. Not sure about the status of Bloody Crane's-bill on the cliffs here, anyway it was a lovely patch of colour. The Hottentot-fig was only in small patches, the flowers always look so beautiful.
