THE NATURE TABLE ~ WEEK 4


This week's nature table has a range of different things today. Some winter flowering cherry, a teasel, a Roman snail shell and a fossil.

Did you know? Fuller's teasel (a bit different than the one pictured above) was used years ago in textile mills to raise the nap of fabrics such as wool. We find a lot of Roman snail shells here in the Cotswolds but they aren't found all over the country, unlike garden snails that were brought over by the Roman's at the same time!
