Bear is no Botanist

Bear is making progress.  He can now tell the difference between a nettle


and a bramble


And even a dock leaf for when it is required


But I don't think he has worked out what is a thistle


All these photos were taken at the back of a pub whose landlord decided to extend - about eight years ago.  And after a brief flurry, nothing.  It's probably a habitat and edging towards a conservation order by now.  I'm sure it's good for wildlife and may explain the toad that I spotted a few weeks ago, but wildlife also includes rats and the house at the far end has been besieged.

  1. Oh, definitely a habitat! :D That's great that Bear is learning to recognize the different plants, though.
