Soft-rush (Juncus effusus) discovered
At the north western end of Troy Track I spotted some rigid green leaves overtopping the grass. These turned out to be a plant of soft-rush (Juncus effusus) that must have been growing, undetected, for at least six months.
It reinforces my observation that it is impossible to ‘see’ everything, even in a small area, on one or several occasions. Seeing things like this rush for the first time seems to occur when, for some reason, conditions in the brain are right.
