Corn Chamomile, Göteborg, August 23rd, 2002
So: I looked twice
and this was in the wrong lawn (no new soil)
and the wrong green colour (too dark)
and no smell to boast of
- just these lobes, slightly broad to be fine
and greyish fuzz that didn't look Mayweed at all...
Time for som magnification.
And there are bracts between the disk flowers.
Puzzling. A case for Erik (conveniently here
to doubt my Hard Rush) and be showered with questions.
So here's the Corn Chamomile
which I wouldn't have seen if not for the Stinking
but would probably have been less confused about
if my mind hadn't been so
absorbed by the other one.
Many thanks to Neil and Ragnhild Crawford for acting as guides to one of the two "permanent" locations for A. cotula in Sweden.
