Wonderful Jersey

A holiday in early May to Jersey, my first visit to this island, gave me the opportunity to extend my plant species in a big way. With the help of a lovely lady who gave up her Bank Holiday and took me to La Carriere Dunes area where I noted 18 new species. These included Jersey Pigmyweed, Spring Vetch, Little Robin, Sand Catstail, Dwarf Pansy. We later explored Corbiere where 6 additional new species included my target Sand Crocus, also Four-leaved Allseed, Upright Chickweed, etc. Later in the week Lax-flowered Orchid was in flower. A memorable few days.
