I may have neither the know-how nor the impressive gear that Kik has, but still we have one thing in common: give us a camera and some nature and we’re happy as a pig in the muck, and cavort around, taking pictures of just about anything.

Which we then did.
As you might have guessed.

I tried to narrow it down to a certain type, but did not succeed, so all I can say is that the following pictures show mallow.

Near a pasture I found a patch of white clover (Trifolium repens), which stunned me somewhat:

giant white clover 1
white clover

“Well, yes, that is white clover,” I hear you say. “Seen it, searched for the four-leaved ones, thanks to those never-quite-dying superstitions… But those are all only trefoil, so what’s the big deal, Mel? Don’t get out much, do you?”

“No, no,” says I, “I know my clover. Actually, we have tons of it growing in our lawn, unfortunately.”

“Well, it looks a bit tatty,” you say, trying to be polite.1

Ok, it seems you’ll never guess, so I’ll just show you, ok?

giant white clover 2
OMG, it’s teh giant man-eating clover, ruuuun!!!

*coughs*
Sorry.
Got a bit carried away there.

Anyway, a bit further on we found some normal sized clover, which came as a bit of a relief for me.

And there was more - albeit less astounding - flora to see:

thistle

grain
some grain growing wild, with insect

white campion
white campion (Silene latifolia)

But what’s a foray into nature without some buzzing insects?

soldier beetle

Then someone got it all wrong about photos and how they are taken and alighted on the telephoto lens of Kik’s camera…:

common scorpionfly
common scorpionfly (Panorpa communis) being “photogenic”

Let us now get to the point Pandora has already been demanding in part two of my castle posts:
The shy creatures that were on the pasture I mentioned earlier on.

sheep 1
“Bummer, that two-legged creature found our hiding place…”

sheep 2
“… let’s go, Lizzy.”

landscape 1
And last but not least…

landscape 2
… a bit of a view.

P.S.:

baaa
“Who’re you lookin’ at?!?”

  1. I can’t help the feeling that this sounds like the type of conversation I might have with Pandora…. [back]

    Not to repeat myself, okay maybe I will, beautiful pictures, Mel. :)

    Ahhh, clover. I tell myself that it is good for the lawn. And, really, one doesn’t want that yard on steroids look that is acquired with frequent chemical/fertilizer applications and underground sprinkling. The more natural look is in. ;)

    wha’? When do I give them impression I am not thrilled by clover?

    As for the sheeps, you went on about them so much I was suprised when you had 2 new blog posts (never rains but it pours eh)and no sign of the woolly critters. :P
    baa.

    @ Lynnette: Well, we have more clover than lawn by now, so, er….

    @ Pandora: I didn’t mean the clover; I mean the way of talking to me. :P
    Well, I wasn’t done yet, as you can see. *glares*

    Your normal sized clover looks identical to clover that we have over here. If I get near a clover patch, I can usually find a four leaved clover within a few minutes. I guess have a bit of the Rainman in me. ;)

    That big sheep looks meaner than some dogs I have known!

    Well, I only took a pic of the normal clover as a contrast to the giant clover. I have never seen clover growing so huge.

    Appearances… those sheep were all cowards.
