June 29th - It must be high summer , as the water lilies are in bloom on the local canals.These were near the Black Cock Bridge, in Walsall Wood. I don’t know if this is an invasive species or just a resurgent resident one, but they’re very lovely. We never used to see them when I was a kid, as the canals were too filthy to support much apart from sticklebacks and algae. The yellow variety - there’s a white lily too, which is also extraordinary - is fascinating to study. The flower heads are very complex. I’m quite fascinated by them.
