My previous blog post on plants in the Kikkervalleien in Meijendel nature reserve finished with marsh grass-of-Parnassus. On the marshy lakelet banks there were other plants as well, as these water mint flowers show.
Also, little green sedge.
And its relative, blue sedge.
And sand sedge.
And a moss species: great hairy screw-moss.
Small white flowers of knotted pearlwort.
Lesser hawkbit flowers were yellow again.
Marsh lousewort, a Red List species.
Drug eyebright flowering.
In the next lake, both on the bank and in shallow water, a really special species: shoreweed.
Some shoreweed plants had fruits.
Broad-leaved pondweed in the water as well.
Common speedwell on higher, drier ground.
And common self-heal flowers.
And seaside pansy.
A marsh helleborine orchid plant. Not flowering.
On our way back, we see St John’s wort flowers.
Finally, another lakelet.
Fan-leaved water-crowfoot in the water.
Ivy-leaved crowfoot in the Netherlands: here.
On its banks, clustered dock.
And its relative, golden dock.
And another species: water mint. The first as well as the last plant in this blog post.
