    A fascinating plant known as Cuckoo Pint, Lords and Ladies, Jack in the Pulpit
    aka Arum maculatum

    Yes - Arum. Cold temps certainly won't prevent it growing  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • Yes thanks. I think your both spot on. I've seen the adult about previously.  This is a big relief 👍

    They do spread themselves around, but the leaves due down in early summer and if you don’t want the attractive and colourful (but toxic) berries the stems bearing them are easily removed. They are however a good food resource for birds and small native mammals. 
    Just supervise small children around them.
