Today I took my apprenticeship group on a walk through parts of Park Frankendael. We found lots of life, from buds slowly developing on waterside Willow, to Geraniums looking almost as perky as in mid summer, to Potentilla populating the spaces that Ramsoms claim in spring, to Russian Comfrey still hanging on despite the cold weather, to Garlic mustard building strength from the last rays of sun, to Hoary Plantain looking strong and not at all endangered.
Here’s a Holly and Ivy photo taken today in the woods.
A pretty and edible pansy, close to my daughter’s favourite playground.
And a little Robin, hopping along beside our group as we looked at the dried out flower stems of Lyme’s disease beating Teasel.
