The quest has led to me buying a book of Leicestershire flora. Not just to look up the elusive hellebore, it set me wondering about other plants we could look out for.
The book duly arrived and I looked at it a bit stumped wondering how it works. I soon worked it out though in the main it is aimed at an audience with more horticultural knowledge than I. Excitingly it has lots of maps of Australia in it..... The book is over thirty years old so it does involve looking for plants that are in it by judging against old records but that, as they say, is the point. Just think how sad it is that plants are disappearing from where they used to grow naturally.
Anyhoo, back to the walk on this specific quest. We had decided to try near to Fawsley, just the other side of Daventry.and ta-da! there they were! I had not fallen in a stream whilst trying to find them so all was good.
