Herb Robert, Hogweed, Dog Rose, Knapweed

The Herb Robert and the Hogweed are both growing in the wood. The hogweed can grow very tall, and tends to grow amongst the bracken on the steeper parts of the wood. The herb robert grows anywhere, but mainly near the little streams which run through the wood. The dog roses are growing in several places, although I have had to cut a few back as they were becoming too straggly. Hopefully they will improve by being pruned. The knapweed in on the roadside, in front of the fence, and also grows tall, about two feet, and the flowers are about an inch across, so they are quite stiking. It seems to prefer roadsides.
