Under The Hedge

Plants, fungi, mantids, inverts, pretty pictures, interesting facts.

Like 90% of Buckingham’s plant flora is just blackberries (Rubus fruticosus), but I love them. Even if I did slash my shin up on some yesterday (didn’t actually notice until two hours later when I scratched my itching leg and suddenly: agony!).

An ongoing argument I have with my Scottish friends: To me bramble is the plant, blackberry is the fruit. They all insist the fruits are also called brambles.

They are wrong.
