Agnews Hill and some useful winter plants Part 2
Bittercress growing in a ditch. A peppery delight. A very distinctive shape.
A Goat Willow or Sallow growing in a firebreak,
A great place to look for kindling is in the lower branches of Spruce. Often a completely dry bundle can be found even in the heaviest of down pours.
Ground Ivy was in plentiful supply. A good herb for a tea.
My gear for the day.
I came down to the lakes edge and found the a few old shotgun shells. There where plenty of ducks about too.
My Maxpedition KISS versipack
The very distinctive Common Sorrel. Another zingy plant.
A winter Daisy rosette, edible.
