Water lily

Water lilies have appeared in Alder Pond (Big Meadow) this summer. How I don’t know but if they survive the pond occasionally drying up they will be a lovely feature.

Also can anyone identify this plant which is growing in the Hay Meadow marsh but which I can’t find in any of my books or the Wildflower Identification collection which is on the Fairfield web site?

Many thanks if you can help

    The yellow flower that I could not find has been identified as Monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus). Many thanks to Laura for researching this.
