Back in July we went in search of a plant blessed with the name of “Least Lettuce” Lactuca saligna. It is very rare nationally and in Kent is known from only one site. Why did we want to find it? It’s a Pocock plant (right photograph). And we made a big effort to search for it. We did eventually find the plant and if you want to know more about it then visit the Robert Pocock Herbarium page.
Most often though, we are not “searching” for anything but just keeping our eyes open and enjoying what we see.
Our trip last week gave us a really good example of this (left photograph). I have seen the animal before but this was special. What do you think we were looking at? Have a go with this one – I really enjoy the incorrect answers! I can’t wait to show you the pictures and video.
