First Day Flowers for 2015

On a dull, cold, windy 1st January 2015 I went walking in Hunstanton looking for plants in flower. I didn't have much optimism but after looking at a number of road verges, pavements, waste ground and community orchard I ended up with a total of 33 species.

The list: 
Annual Meadow Grass, Annual Mercury, Cat's-ear, Common Chickweed, Common Field Speedwell, Common Ragwort, Daisy, Dandelion, Dove's-foot Crane's-bill, Feverfew, Gorse, Groundsel, Lesser Hawkbit, Lesser Periwinkle, Montpellier Broom, Oxford Ragwort, Pellitory-of-the-wall, Petty Spurge, Pot Marigold, Prickly Sow-thistle, Red Clover, Red Dead-nettle, Red Valerian, Scentless Mayweed, Shepherd's-purse, Smooth Hawk's-beard, Smooth Sow-thistle, Sweet Violet, Thyme-leaved Sandwort, White Comfrey, White Dead-nettle, Wild Clary, Yarrow.
