Cheers. Personal satisfaction - stuff to do when you retire. Teacher is a lichenologist really, but also an expert plant botanist. I've been doing it for 4 years now, two terms at once a week. It's fascinating stuff but it doesn't half slow walks down

Good to see you've got Hellebores in the garden! That'd be very unusual up here, although there was another Broad Leaved one growing next to the track en route to the 1st tee in the golf club, getting trolly wheels all over it.

I thought photography slowed walks down

Our friend Barry Stevenson travels the whole world as a botanist,we have plants in the garden from all over. He brings seeds back and cultivates them here to see if they can survive.

No Japanese Knotweed , John, or Triffids, so think we may be safe

Thought you might enjoy this, raindrops on Green Hellebore ( from the garden )

Impressive discipline of the droplets.

The reserve is thriving, nice to make a visit.

Sounds perfect. Do they look exactly like the one I know here?

look forward to seeing them later.

Harold, Spectacular flowers. Tend not to be able to grow it in our garden. But a very nice specimen.

Thanks, Peter.

This one has hung onto life, helped by permanent support to its leaning stem from string, attached to a nearby fruit tree.

Look out for some large, yellow Spurge (Euphorbia). You may also find Wood Sorrel and Wood Anemone.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

When I was out looking for Orange Tips egg laying I took some shots of Lady's Smock (Cardamine pratensis) with and without butterflies. I am posting it here together with a link to a handy hint on propagating some for your wild patch in your garden; thereby encouraging orange tips to visit and hopefully breed there. I was shown the blog link on Twitter. The hint works, it is simple and quick and the only thing you need to ensure is you mist spray it every day..

I have high hopes that Imageryone will have a go for his reserve.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

We have Orange Tips as residents every year. I was trying to photograph a male on Honesty within the past hour.

Garlic Mustard aka Jack By The Hedge is rampant in out garden but I have yet to see caterpillars on it.

Red Campion flower - Silene Dioica

Some Red Campion on its own and with a visitor


Male Brimstone on Red Campion flower
by Peter Willmott, on Flickr

Please excuse the posting of a butterfly in flowers. But we need some controversy here...

The pink was very variable. I think as it gets older it fades. Plus the sun was in and out.
