Lace by the river

DAY 46 (21 MAY) – Cow parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris) (River Wey)

The River Wey meanders narrowly through much of rural Surrey, here bordered by cow parsley and reflecting the blue sky of late afternoon. Something resembling summer today.

Also known as Queen Anne’s lace, wild chervil and keck, it attracts creatures as diverse as orange-tip butterflies, marmalade hoverflies and rabbits.
