Most plants gone over. Upright. Growing alongside and with Equal leaved Knotgrass.
No interactions present.
Nice picture of a plant that would not usually considered to be attractive
I do like to get up close on the small stuff. With a half decent lens and step up rings, it's like entering another world!

Wow, what a pretty little thing!
Btw, would you say Polly-GO-num, or po-LIGG-a'num?
How to take close-ups with cheap phone and hand-lens:
Field Guides for Budding Botanists:
I would say Polly -go- num. Suppose it's like tomayto or tomarto. Is there a right way to pronounce it? Perhaps someone will enlighten us.
I would say PO'li'GO'num, keeping the apparent morphemes separate. But referring to a dictionary, the pronunciation is given as po'LIG'an'am.
Apparently the name goes back to Greek polugonon, meaning "many knees".
for that lavateraguy. Your thoughts (and anyone elses) always welcome. Gary
Most people I have encountered say po-LIGG-a'num. Many Latin names are popularly pronounced in the fewest stressed syllables even if it distorts how they were derived. I would prefer "keeping the apparent morphemes separate" but it is a losing battle.
And I fill my car at the gah-rahdge, not the garridge.
But then, I'm a Londoner, inni.
I think in this case that po-LI-g'num is going to win. On reflection, polly-GO-num sounds a bit too "spoke like it's spelt". Like saying Empy-dockles instead of Em-PEE-d'cleese.
Or, as per Carol-I-can't-stand-your-accent-Kline, Heemer-ockle-ees. Hemerocallis, you silly woman, that's HEEmer-o'callis.
Mind you, I've heard perfectly grown-up people pronounce Cotoneaster as cotton-easter. But to be fair, if you've only ever read the labels or read it in a book, how would you know that ist's pronounced K'toney-aster?
Oh dear, this debate could run and run: sorry, everyone!
