Colour from the season - Club Rush Brown

I nearly didn't post these - my walking companion (Pete) thought these Club Rushes too dull to bother with, and you may agree with him!

In their defence, their flower heads catching the faint sunshine were like little orange beacons glowing. Maybe I have a serious case of wearing rose tinted specs here, but they were one of the most colourful plants in the dunes at the North Devon Coast last weekend and I thought them worth a mention. Pah who needs show off tropical colour and glorious sunshine anyway! - think Harris Tweed...
