Broomrapes and beer

A further meeting of the bloggers took place yesterday evening when I pootled along to Walmer to meet up with Steve 'Kingdowner' Coates. He generously gave me a whistlestop tour of the coast, showing me sites for Sea Pea, Narrow-leaved Ragwort, various Stonecrops and Oxtongue Broomrape (above). This was rounded off with a couple of beers in a Kingsdown pub where we were joined by Nigel Jarman, Kingsdown moth-er supreme. We even managed to kick up a Bright Wave moth. It was a wonderful evening spent in good company in a lovely part of east Kent. Thankyou Steve. And yes, I quite agree with you - you have more than a passing resemblance to George Clooney...
