30 Days Wild :: Day 2

Common Bittercress

Common Bittercress (Barbarea vulgaris)

Not much to show for the 2nd – but did spot this wildflower that we didn’t recognise, the day before and learnt its name: Common Bittercress (Barbarea vulgaris).  It might be a small thing, but it’s something new learnt.  If we could find even one new wildflower a week and learn to recognise it, that would be 52 new flowers learnt a year – not a bad tally considering I read (and now can’t remember the source) a rather depressing statistic regarding larger numbers of children struggling to name a dandelion or buttercup, let alone anything else.
