lots of sleep, wayfaring tree, guelder rose, flowering rush

Amazing to be on holiday--with lots of sleep last night (catching up after those busy weeks). Strange dreams, though.

Lovely walk to Buckland from Tadpole Bridge.

Excellent glimpses of wayfaring tree (top two photos) and guelder rose (third from top), not to mention flowering rush, (the fourth one). Last of these, particularly exciting. A very occasional sight, this plant is slender and beautiful. The last one I saw was growing on silt on a bend of the Thames not far from the old gas works below Osney back in 1989.
