+Original A1 Posted September 3, 2012 Share Posted September 3, 2012 I would suggest I'm a reasonably but not outstandingly-observant cacher, and enjoy watching flora and fauna the year round, often with a view to photographing what attracts my attention. This year, however, I've noticed a massive increase in the amount of ragwort around the countryside. Now I don't know a heap about it other than it's a golden yellow and that it's supposedly extremely poisonous to horses (and cattle?), which I suppose is why it's attracted my attention. There are so many fields with ragwort in them. And verges. I had a friend staying a couple of weeks ago who grew up in Scotland and she said that when she was young, they all had to go out and dig up any ragwort which grew in the fields as it was illegal to let it stay put. That's the first I've heard of it, but if it's the case, a lot of people are breaking the law. Does anyone have any observations/comments to make? Quote Link to comment
