Knapweed wildflower sketch

Day 182, of my 2016 sketch a day challenge

Knapweed sketch

Back to Wangford today to the churchyard and finally the Knapweed (Centaurea nigra) is in flower a sign that Summer is finally here. Knapweed is a perennial herb and a favorite of bees and butterflies being an excellent source of pollen. Later in the year they will provide birds like Goldfinches with valuable seeds.
