The Lagoon has been topped up by the increasingly wet weather and on Sunday was around 60cm (two feet) deep in much of the water area. The force of the water gushing from the drain knocked over some of the Bulrushes (see pic) and the flushed sediment is building up, creating a shallow mudbank at this end of the pool.
The plants on the Lagoon meadow continue to flourish – although many are producing berries or seed – and there's even a clump of Kidney Vetch still in flower.
Easily confused – both highly poisonous
