Bindweed flowers

Daily Walk in Difficult Times 84

Scroll down to content

Quiet mood. Contemplative times. Still enjoying nature all around me in all weathers and any time of day. Three predominantly green evening light pictures of plants on my daily walk around Charlton Down village. Lime tree flower buds and sycamore tree seed keys photographed looking upwards against the dull sky. And bindweed twining around yarrow and a feathery-leaved plant that could be fennel on a piece of unused ground that may have been a former kitchen or herb garden.

  1. Found this online “Romans imported and introduced parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, bay, black pepper, coriander, dill, probably fennel, white mustard and many others. I remember visiting some very overgrown Abbey’s in Eire many years ago and many herbs were growing wild around the ruins I always wonder how long they dated back.

  2. That is interesting, Andy. I hadn’t realised that the Romans had introduced so many plants. If the fennel is a remnant of a kitchen or herb garden it would only date back to the late 19th century I am sure.
