Botany

Even though this is a course, there’s no pressure – the idea is quite simply to walk around the island and discover the plant life and hopefully pick up some pointers to use at home during botanical excursions. I have a tendency to overlook some “uninteresting” plants but there’s no such thing here! We started by looking around at the camp site which hosts a number of plants which have been brought in by humans. Some of them are barely clinging to life, and others will invade more and more space in the years to come.

One of the highlights was the mutated small pasque flower, which didn’t look anything like a small pasque flower with its upright bloom. But I think my favourite is the small woodruff, although to be honest I was more attracted to the leaves which grow in a star formation, rather than the flower itself!
