Lots of photos and less chat today, I’ve had a long walk and am itching to make Italian Beech twigs…
Here’s one of several Beech hedges in the park. If you didn’t read my post about tree foraging Linda Runyon, then please take a look, for some eye opening ideas.
Coltsfoot, still blooming:
Sweet woodruff (Galium odoratum), easily confused with Cleavers (Galium aparine). Cleavers are far more succulent than Sweet woodruff, and can grow very tall, using other plants and structures for support as shown yesterday. The two plants have quite different uses.
Geraniums are really bulking up. The cowslips shown here amongst the Geraniums, should never be harvested from the wild as they have such a hard time surviving when their source of seeds is removed. Wild garlic is also in the photo.
