Tufted vetch scrambling through the brambles

You my God have supported me in my mother’s womb and then you took me out of that place: I will praise you continually for this. My safe arrival is confirmed by every breath.

Psalm 71:6 (Sandy’s understanding)
Blue/purple tufted vetch scrambling through the pink of the brambles at the side of the road this morning.  Peas, clovers and vetches are some of the most important plants we can grow if we are interested in conserving and helping our native wild life.  Many insects and rare species depend on them as they produce pollen that is unusually rich in protein.  They are a vital part of the food chain.
Notice the tendrils which grow from the ends of the leaf stalk.  These tendrils hold on to vegetation for support as it grows through it.
In the delicate vase are the tufted vetch with 3 daisies which were growing near by.
Outside Britain, tufted vetch occurs throughout Europe, in Greenland and in Asia as far east as Japan.  It has been introduced to North America, where it is naturalised from Canada to South Carolina.  It is spread by seed and cream coloured creeping roots.  It is a nitrogen fixing plant.

Religion must be life made true,  and life is action, growth, development – begun now and ending never.  And a life made true cannot confine itself – it must reach out and twine around every pulsing interest within reach of its uplifting tendrils .

Anna Julia Cooper ( 1858-1964 . Author, educator, sociologist, speaker and black liberation activists. One of the most prominent African – American  scholars in the history of the United States  )

And just a thought to say thank you for looking at my post.

God made the world round so we would never be able to see too far down the road.

Karen Blixen (1885 – 1962 Danish author who had a farm in Africa and an amazing life!)
