Some pictures after visiting Newport salt marshes over Easter :
There wasn't the usual abundance of sea greens and sea weeds as i had hoped for at this time of the year. Unusual weather, the warm damp stretches as well as the sudden frosts have led to plants dying off early and stopping others from blooming.
Above are some salt marsh scenery pictures as well as sea weeds such as bladder wrack, sea kelp and rock tripe., shepherds purse ( white flower) , oh and the non natives blue bells that are actually called Hyacinthoides hispanica. - These flowers are actually killing our native bluebells , Dont plant them in your garden kids!
