Springtime wild flowers


Grass of Parnassus. Parnassia palustris

11 Aug 2011 29 19 982
A flower of cold beauty and a symbol of 'the wilderness and wetlands'. Also known as the 'bog star', it isn't actually a grass at all, belonging to an entirely different botanical class. It isn't a common flower, although possibly many people would miss it as it is so tiny.

Russula emetica

Commonly known as the sickener, emetic russula, or vomiting russula gives you some idea of the effects of eating this fungus. I think the red colour is enough to warn one.

HFF to you all from Ruyton XI Towns. Say safe and…

Sea anemones. Actinia equina

17 Jul 2009 17 27 314
The beadlet anemone, Actinia equina, is a common sea anemone found on rocky shores around all coasts of the United Kingdom and Norway. It is highly adapted to the intertidal zone as it can tolerate both high temperatures and desiccation. When the tide isn't covering these lovely little animals, they just look like blobs of dark red, brown,green or orange jelly. Sea anemones have a ring of tentacles surrounding their central 'mouth'. The tentacles have specialised stinging cells that are used to immobilise their prey, (plankton, small crabs and fish) and then the tentacles are then able to move the food into the mouth. The extending tentacles can also be used to catch passing food as it drifts past.
