Woodland - July

Some photographs from my walk in the woodland today. It was shady and cool with dappled sunlight. There trees looked very similar to last month but there seemed to be less vegetation on the woodland floor. The footpath was almost overgrown last month but some of the plants have died back leaving the path clear again.

We have had very little rain lately and the stream running down the valley had dried up and although the stream bed was still damp, it was beginning to crack and dry out. 

Only one new flower this month, the tiny flowered Enchanter's Nightshade.

I also noticed a lot of cobwebs, particularly in the holly bushes.

The view looking up shows the canopy to be even more dense than last month casting deeper shade on the plants below.
