Green plant

Posted by ursulakatariina (Turku, Finland) on 9 May 2012 in Plant & Nature.

I guess someone knows what that plant is called...

Nice to see you! I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw earlier.
Please, leave a comment so I know you have been here.

I got a colour spotlight, see it here.

It looks like some form of horsetail, an ancient plant genus that went back to Paleozoic times

@CElliottUK: Thank you. I knew you would tell the name for it! :) And now that I have the English name I could easily find the forgotten Finnish name too!

And a small insect paves its way to somewhere.

@Jypyä Pop: Yeah, that ladybird was running somewhere in a great hurry. :)

@Oiva: Thank you!

Sally from Glasgow, United Kingdom

well, they don't really eat many weeds. they've got an enclosure right in the middle of the garden and all the things i don't want them to touch is round the outside. there's logs and a huge parasol plus the coop and a covered run. a bit like a children's playpark really! i'm getting them a little sandpit next - apparently they love sand and it's good for the feathers.

@Sally: Sounds like you hens have a great place to live!

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

Looks like an animal.

@The Mouse: I'm happy it's not an animal.

It helps me to understand the architecture of Italy, well certainly Pisa.

@Curly: It really does look a little like that famous tower...

Christine from Ellemford, United Kingdom

Chris is right, it is very difficult to get rid of it if it is in the wrong place.....I guess that is why it is still around after all these years

@Christine: Mr Elliott is usually right - I can only wonder how he can know so much!
The plant is quite pretty, but I guess people don't like to have it in their gardens. :)
