Brian's Botanical Finds VII

Brian "Eagle-eyes" Laney has done it again

He nipped over to Leicester VC55 from Northants the other day to visit the Local Records Centre, as you do, and wandered outside. Brian quickly recorded Blinks Montia fontana amongst daffodils outside the offices (on mown lawn under maple) and again near the entrance road. 

Blinks is on the Rare Plant Register for VC55 so the County Recorder will be interested to hear about Brian's find.

He has also submitted his records, with 10 digit grid references, to the Local Records Centre who seem to have devised a cunning plan. Invite Brian to drop in for coffee and cake and then let him take a stroll around outside. A new and interesting plant record is the usual result!
