lovely smell!! hmmmm :)
No interactions present.
Hello, Regina and Welcome to iSpot. I see that you have been submitting some garden plants. These are nice, but not really what iSpot is for. Do share with us your observations of wild plants.
University of Edinburgh and Biodiversity Observatory (OU)
I was just curious to find out what this was, it smells lovely and looks amazing. With a little research I found what it was called.
My interest lays with the wild species etc.. not exactly the domestic pampered stuff.
So I'll avoid posting anything that might be a garden plant.
thanks for the comment.
Great, many thanks. The shrub is in fact a Ceanothus. You were right. They are lovely. Native to California, I believe.
this is unrelated to this observation, and I would send you a message if there was that facility..
I just wanted to clarify if ispot (or the users of ispot) are just interested in findings in the UK or is it welcome to foreign findings too? I am planning a trip to a very fertile location and am looking forward to post a few observations here, that would be very exciting!!!
Thanks in advance,
Regina, thanks for asking.
We are really focused on Britain and Ireland, but there is no objection if you post a _few_ observations from elsewhere, so long as there are not too many. We are hoping to start sister iSpot sites for other parts of the world in due course.
If you do post a few exotic organisms, please add the name of the country in which they were found as a 'tag' when you create the observations to alert people.
sister iSpot sites sounds really exciting!
a global iSpot would be digital paradise! where you could search findings by location, altitude, category etc.. and would be able to make comparisons between similar species from different locations countries. Maybe one day who knows :)
I don't think I will be posting many observations from abroad unless I come across something extremely unusual! (but then I wouldn't really know if its that unusual because being home to me, I would just consider it commmon)
Thanks for your reply Jonathan, I am now looking forward to the new sister iSpots!
