Pale and Interesting

St Aidan's is still throwing up surprises and today was no exception with this unusually pale-flowered form of Yellow Iris (Iris pseudacorus var. bastardii). I was going to make a joke of the unfortunate name until I realised it was likely named to honour the French botanist Toussaint Bastard.

I was even more pleased with my find when I realised it was just inside VC64, Until the recent update of the relevant OS map it wasn't clear that this waterbody was wholly in VC64.
