Day 13 of my celebrates the people we go botanising with. Do you have a local Botanical Society? Or a group you do the with? Maybe a friend you walk and talk plants with or a modern day botanical hero?

Happy new year! I always start the year with a walk - with my camera of course - and caught the sun shining on this Dove's-foot Crane's-bill this morning. A good start to the year. I hope your year starts well and continues to be a happy and prosperous one.
