Meadowsweet, where the inspiration for the name of this blog come from. It grows all around here.
Several of these sites on the right were highlighted for me by Hen - all I can say is a HUGE thank you, as they are all excellent resources. Some I was aware of, but the post code plants . . . well, I have my summer mapped out. I downloaded ELEVEN pages of plants which had been recorded in my part of Carmarthenshire. Many I already knew and had seen, quite a few I know and haven't seen, and some are totally new to me. I shall sit down with my all-encompassing Marjorie Blamey/Christopher Grey* botanical book this afternoon and extend my knowledge. I intend to try and put ticks beside most of these this summer . . . (*The Illustrated Flora of Britain and Northern Europe).
