Looking at Trifolium suffocatum (Suffocated Clover) in N. Wales

 Had a cold but unexpected dry day out with Wendy & Martyn today looking for Suffocated Clover to start the day off. This the only site in N. Wales. Otherwise only known from Glamorgan in Wales. Spent the rest of the day helping Wendy and Martyn learn Fumaria.

Out with the Denbighshire Botany Group today

 The wood we walked around was covered in Early Purple Orchids. Two had white flowers.

The group enjoying themselves on this lovely day.
