Honesty. It took a few days of Googling to identify it….
White Dead Nettles
Wild Garlic amongst the bluebells.
Even Nettles, this Spring! Nettles risotto anyone?

Anyone to add to my selection from your gardens? Any gorgeous dandelions?

Don’t criminalise trespass

Uncategorised Posted on 14 March 2020 10:12

For info:

Article from The Ramblers:

Trespass proposals could be ‘thin end of the wedge’ for walkers.

Petition (some of you will be interested in signing – I have already):

Don’t criminalise trespass

The petition has been organised by Guy Shrubsole, who works as a campaigner for Friends of the Earth, writes for The Guardian, and is the author of the blog Who owns England.
