The village has pulled a huge tree trunk out from a small spit near the overflow pond. This has left a large clear area that nature is quickly reclaiming. We have seen frogs there and I went down to see what else is there now. This small creeping plant caught my eye – the orange flowers are only about a quarter to half an inch across – and so I took a photo. I believe it’s Scarlet Pimpernel ( Anagellis arvensis ), a plant I’d never seen before. It’s quite striking.
