The bluish purple flowers of Tufted Vetch (Vicia cracca), another member of the Pea Family Fabaceae, were also out in abundance on my July visit to Newport Wetlands National Nature Reserve. Sometimes growing on their own and sometimes with tendrils entwined with other plants. The contrast their bright colour makes against the blue-grey leaves of the reeds, and beside the yellow flowers of Ribbed Melilot are particularly attractive.
