Beddington Park- Ferns and Botany

 Hart's Tongue (with Mind-your-own-business)
 Royal Fern
 Male Fern
 Polypody and Maidenhair Spleenwort
 Great Burnet (rare)
 American Speedwell (rare)
 Greater Spearwort (actually in the farmlands by Carew Manor)
Water Forget-me-not
Met up with Gillian and Peter Wakeham with his botany group this morning to have a look at some of the special plants in Beddington Park- (Beddington Park is adjacent to the farmlands and will combine to form the regional park in the future).
As usual with Peter- an excellent outing (thanks again!), being shown things that I've walked past hundreds of times. The trees in Beddington Park are pretty spectacular and was shown a species I've missed before- a Cut-leaved Alder which was growing by the river near Carew Manor.

Pinpoint, are you going to be at Peter's Canons Farm meeting this Saturday morning?

Will be now, if okay. What time and where's the meeting place. Cheers Steve!
