This is *huge*! Where new roads are necessary, they should at least be an opportunity to put in better habitat for wildlife. Well done & 👏🌱🦋🐝 Next steps: extend to all road verges, modify mowing regimes to enhance biodiversity & save energy

Day 3 of my . Latin names are essential in botany, but so are common names. They have a certain charm that welcomes beginners & captures the imagination: round-headed rampion, squinancywort, foxglove, honeysuckle. What are your favourites?

The one moment (in a year of special moments) that made me just stop and stare in wonder (I may also have jibbered something to myself) was seeing Heath lobelia glowing in a misty dawn in Hampshire. Magical moment.

Day#39. A run at dusk along the River Frome today, with the mist rising on the Coastal and Floodplain Grazing Marsh. Summer memories of Cuckoo Flower, Meadow Buttercup and Mousetail in muddy gateways.

Two contrastingly shaped scaly male-fern fronds. The right-hand one has branches decreasing in greatly in length towards the base. Close-up on right showing 'thumbs' on basal pinnules overlapping stems. I think this is narrow male fern, if so it's a first for Kincardineshire.

Day 1 of my . What plants remind you of home & why? For me it’s common broomrape & small scabious, two that I used to find on the hillside near where I lived for most of my life. Since moving away their familiarity has always been comforting, wherever I am

Wild violets always remind me of being a little girl. Every spring my grandma and I would go searching for them. She is no longer with us and every time I see them I’m back there with her. I have some appear in my own garden these days.
