Welcome to the Marsh in May 2017.
May 7th 2017. Not far down the path from the gate you will find two plants. Marsh Valerian and Bugle. Compare the Marsh Valerian with the Common Valerian we will see later on. Bugle is supposed to get its name not from the musical instrument but from mediaeval glass ornaments which were sewn into clothing, Bugle refers to the unusual purple/blue colour.
