SEPTEMBER sea carrots & sea cabbages

September 7, 2011

In Dorset, coastal paths whiff of salty cabbage.  Tough and tall old brassicas cling to cliff edges, with leaves made lace-like by a constant stream of visiting cabbage white butterflies.  And there are sea carrots too, with slowly unfurling umbrella-like flower heads of tiny white flowers.  These southern sea paths are also lined with hardy blackberry bushes and sloe trees.  Rich early autumn pickings for some very happy campers, out of their London bubble and smelling of wood smoke.
