“Happy Birthday to me, Happy birthday to me.”
It is not your fault, I didn’t say but she knew.
You can’t give somebody “yourself” as a Birthday present. That’s not a proper present!
I got up early today to get my chores done. Wash the kitchen floor, quick hoover round, get the place nice and “don’t forget to get the dog dirty.”
I’ll get my own presents.
This is one of my favourite spring flowers. Greater Stitchwort, Stellaria holostea. Pay attention to that Latin name and I will show you some other Stellaria in a minute.
This beautiful flower has just five petals but each one is split to about halfway.
Obviously if there is a Greater Stitchwort then there must be a Lesser one.
Some people get confused between the species. This is the lesser one. Stellaria graminea.
It still only has five petals but now they are much more deeply divided and spaced apart. The flower is smaller than the Greater one.
If there is a greater one and a lesser one then there is probably an inconsequential one too. We call it Common Chickweed.
People call this one a weed (Bless) all of my flowers are weeds and this one is quite tiny. It still has the family resemblance and it is beautiful.
Well thank you so much Fizz. That was just what I wanted, a bunch of flowers.
A bit cheap though. I know you don’t got money but you could have stole some.
That is not the whole story of my Birthday.
Fizz and I went out to look at mushrooms and I found a good example of Trametes versicolour.
That’s a Turkeytail Fungus.
I couldn’t get a decent photograph because I just couldn’t keep it still. I turned around and somebody was eating the other end of the branch!
Who is raggin’ on my tree?
It wasn’t me 🙂I can’t believe that you would do that to me on my Birthday.
Thank you for the days.
