Rusty leaves.

Every year we get carpets of Adoxa moschatellina (Town hall clock) but cant say I've ever seen them covered in rust. While walking in a slightly different part of the land we found several effected plants. These little white cups are puccinia albescens, kindly confirmed by our resident rust expert the lovely Nigel, who said he has only 30 county records of this so a nice find.

  1. Aren't we lucky to have Nigel at hand to inform us. I must take a close look at Town Hall Clock.
