An even more impatient summer – phenological observations of flowering plants @ QUBS – continued.

With temperatures hovering at around 30 degrees Celsius, and high air humidity, the flowering plants at QUBS have rushed into summer weather when it’s still only the end of spring.

  1. Thanks Andy. I have enjoyed the list. One thing I would add is the common name for each plant so none-botanists, like myself, can easily recognize which plant to look for in the field.
