Close enough Anne. It is Hymenophyllum wilsonii, wilsons filmy-fern.

Purple bordered gold on the local patch. Has anyone else noticed the lack of ladybirds? Perhaps it is the cold spring that caused this.

Any ideas regarding this "slime"? Also note the "blackberry" like mounds next to it. Found on moorland. Img. 1000808. The black "droppings" look like un-digested seeds.

I have just seen a peacock butterfly in the garden. I think this is the earliest record for my garden. The weather is cool and quite windy. Has anyone else seen butterflies this year in the UK.

As it is Easter I thought a picture of pasque flower would be appropriate, photographed in the wild img. 265. Fasciated stem of a sowthistle, Sonchus sp. img. 266. Mimulus at St. Cyrus, img. 267. A local species, Royal Fern, Osmunda regalis img. 268.
