Just like a tartan!

It’s wonderful to be so close to such beauty and to have the chance to learn more about plants that I’ve heard of or even used clinically and yet never seen, as well as to meet some entirely new ones. I’m on the hunt for some good field guides to help me as there is so much to learn- I recently confused squill with bluebells! I’m pretty rusty and surely more mistakes ahead of me but I’m just so grateful to be using my horticultural brain again!

One thought on “in the woods

    I just love the little unfolding curls of bracken, don’t you? Just the sweetest things ever.

    Happy for you, finding your horticulture joy again. I doubt you’ll be rusty for long – I’m sure it will all be flooding back, and more added to boot!
