What did I say about September? This is much more like it… Although to be honest, the forest is still pretty much just shades of green except for these occasional spots of colour. I found this rosebay willowherb (Epilobium angustifolium) that was bent on the ground so that the radiance of the leaves was unmissable as I walked towards the flower. Rosebay willowherb is known as fireweed in the US and the autumn reveals why, because the reds and yellows stand out in any weather but catch them backlit by the sun and you realise that some flowers are even more beautiful in the off-season!
