Tubers found on a beach. No idea what they are but they made a smashing spare hand.
No interactions present.
Looks like a Dahlia having its winter dormancy. For some reason the system won't let me add this as an ID.
I agree!Looks like Dahlia to me!

Fantastic! Many thanks both.
Been having a look at your website, very interesting, even more fascinated by the fact you come from St. Austell, my hometown too, but I haven't lived there since about 1969!
Love Cornwall and still visit regularly.Now live on the Isle of Wight!
Small world! I grew up in St.Austell but my father was actually from Godshill on the Isle of Wight :) I'm a Boscoppa girl if that rings a bell? It was a great place to grow up and i love going back and exploring the wildlife of Cornwall further. Definitely time for a visit to the IOW this year too!
Hi Catherine again!
Well what a coincidence!My family lived in Mitchell Road half way up Sandy Hill. I went to Penrice School,but my father and his ancestors were based on the Penrice Estate outside of St.Austell near Porthpean.
The Isle of Wight is well worth a visit, we live on the Undercliff which is very mild, not far from Godshill.
I will look out for your observations in future.
Mitchell road - thats very close! A childhood friend lived on Gannet drive just off it. I went to Penrice too though now i think its called Penrice community language college/academy or some such nonsense! Interesting that your ancestors were based on the Penrice estate and i love Porthpean beach. I was there at Christmas - lots of common scoter, a single velvet and such a great place to see Fulmar on the cliffs. Still plenty of winter heliotrope by the car park - i've been sniffing those cherry scented flowers since i was knee high to a grasshopper! Best wishes and i will look out for your observations also.
