Long Post (apologies)


Plants have certainly got my brain working. Nothing is as straight forward as I thought. Plants I have commonly assigned a name from a cursory glance at some online images are becoming puzzles I want to solve like a good 'Murder Mystery'.

Please contact me via Twitter if you notice mistakes (there will be many) or ones I have failed completely with, like three below.
