||A large, old stem growing up oak (Quercus petraea). Ogwen Woods, Bethesda, N. Wales, UK. Since sheep relish ivy, there are suspicions that this one got above their browse in a period of agricultural recession, maybe the 1920's. The fresh growth on the left is ungrazed because the wall behind was recently repaired.
||Multi stemmed flowering plant next to a windrow of brash. Gwydyr Forest, N. Wales, UK. The site had been clear felled and replanted a couple of years previously. This plant probably came from the soil seed bank and was enjoying the brief opportunity before being overtaken by the next rotation of conifers.
||View of Braich Melyn, Bethesda, N. Wales, UK. Moonrise over a forestry plantation of Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis). Changes in land use. The dead tree in the plantation was oak(Quercus petraea), probably ringbarked, when the conifers were planted. Changes and declines in agricultural practices on marginal areas, such as this, allow the income of Rush and Bracken.
||A UK native, widespread but scarce. Locally common in N. Wales, growing at high elevations on usually acidic rocks and scree. As the name suggests, the foliage resembles that of parsley.
