A tale of two parsleys
I was surprised to see one or two plants of Fool's Parsley in Montpelier Park today - not a common plant on the patch. Meanwhile another umbellifer, first found by Chris and still persisting near the Royal Mail office, is Stone Parsley. This rather unremarkable-looking plant has leaves that smell of petrol!
Not an awful lot at the station this morning other than an early instar of Green Shieldbug. I also hear a domestic cat coughing nearby but couldn't see it!
