Ossie; I've now - quite by chance, actually - confirmed it's most definately Not Bog Bean. I found that out whilst viewing another forum entirely where someone well up displayed just that plant. I've also rediscovered my favoured Irish Plants ID site and shall, given a moment and thinking of it, go there and check the reddish / smock plant out.

 

Mheanwhile, here's a bit of fun for us; I came across this one, not yet opened. There's a bloody challenge, eh? I checked it against my own WoundWort and it's not that. Bugger is, I don't remember exactly where I found it and so may never stumble across it again! :laugh: If not, we may never know!

 

For now though, and just for fun:

 

 

Any Guesses?

:D Don't know quite what prompted that one, Jooks. Tell ye what though, I too have pretty well combed Maybe's book in the hope of something to eat. Hazel nuts? Sure. If the time's right and ye can find them before the tree rats! Anyway, that was in the days when I had teeth! :laugh:

 

Quite frankly, I'd be happier with Ray Mears than Richard Maybe. See how Mears goes after 'Thistle Nuts' and digs up Burdock roots which he ~ and often as not an uninitiated guest companion ~ can then sit and happily munch away on?

 

Maybe I'm at a disadvantage, with Maybe, because I can't eat 'salad'. Dandelion leaves just ain't me! But then, like Ray, I can (and have done) produce a rabbit wire from waste land and catch meat! ;)
