A little life and colour


                                                                  Coltsfoot
                                                       


A walk around Shilbottle today looking for signs of life in the hedgerows inspired by Wednesday nights talk at the Wildlife Group meeting. I found this welcome patch of Coltsfoot in a sheltered field corner. Further along towards Buston Common Scurvy-grass seemed to be fresh and thriving and showing some flower heads, growing through last years dead grass and withered thistle stems. Common plants, but for me interesting and not easy to identify.
