    I was thinking, we've got the spring coming up fast so the world is starting to wake up, if not explode with life some areas so it's a prime opportunity to get loads of pictures of natures larder, plants, berries, fungi, tubers, greens etc will all be ready for us through this year, so, wherever possible lets get some pictures up with names/descriptions and any comments on preparing them etc.

    This has the potential to be a great thread so keep it in mind when you're out and about and if you've got anything already that you can add come on and get stuck in :D

    The flowers of the Ramsome are not only edible, but delicious and decorative as well.................one of the best bits, IMHO. :)

    This thread should not have gone dormant anyway. Will try to keep it alive now.
