hazel, I am sure you probably know this, but the cast a clout thing, is not about the month of May, but Mae flower, or Hawthorn.

Easy one for me, a hospital loses the amount of the fine, from its budget.

I could add, that might make it more likely for an incident to occur again.

Help with this plant

It is a Pieris.

It needs acid soil, and for me, they grow better with some shade.

L. arkwrightii [ ? sp. ], I think. Lovely orange flowers, although rather short lived perennial. Very easy from seed, same year flowering.

New Plant Species Discovered in 2015

Radio 4 had a slot on this earlier, and there were actually 200 new plant species discovered last year.

I think it is rather wonderful, that we are still discovering so many new species.

G'day all.

No sun today, but some rain is needed here. Seems strange to be saying that, after the winter we have had.

Have a good day.

ID please :-)
