Saw a solitary flower open on a Hairy Willowherb plant. 
Great Willowherb, Epilobium hirsutum, AKA Hairy Willowherb, Codlins and Cream and Cherry pie. 
I should have got round to taking a series earlier in the summer.
Snipped it off and took some shots. One advantage was I could take some pix of the seeding.

Once again such small seeds for so large a plant. No wonder that it can spread so easily.










































The lightest of breezes would carry this achene and papus for miles.
