The footpath along the lower part of Barton Fields is very close to the River Thames and next to an overflow channel.
Reeds and sedges grow where there are pools and boggy areas in the lower part.
Along the upper edge of the meadow runs a cycle way. Trees hide the buildings the other side, above the flood plain.
A couple of weeks ago the grass was cut in the grassy flower meadow on the upper part.
It got piled into several heaps. Green grass is already growing back.
But we have reached the tipping point of the year at Barton Fields. Flowers have turned to seeds.
Woody nightshade berries can be seen, dangerously red, at the lower end.
Hawthorn berries at the upper part are a less striking shade.
Teasel grows in both the upper and lower parts of the meadow. Spiders find their spikey heads an excellent place to spin webs.
