Lovely Little Liverworts!

We don’t always appreciate the wonders that lie just beneath our feet. Take a look at this ‘liverwort forest’ spotted yesterday by volunteers working in Saron Graveyard. These plants have been around for 470,000,000 years (that’s 470 million); well before dinosaurs roamed the earth. Amazing!


About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
