Herefordshire hardly happening

Thanks ever so much to Jon for posting the important news that iris has appeared at Minsmere, presumably as the result of natural spread from the recently introduced colony at Theberton Wood. This is a really valuable piece of information. If my memory serves well there is a large area of sallow carr at the back of Minsmere, closer to Theberton. I need to visit... .

Today? I was in Haugh Wood, Hereford, which isn't Purple - the sallow leaves don't seem right (too shiny perhaps).

Wye and Severn Valleys firmly part of the Empire in IRH time, no?
