Foraging for lunch, plus bunnies, Roman Snails and Orchids

We decided to go for a walk in the rain this morning to forage for leaves we could eat for lunch. The rain had brought out loads of huge slugs and snails. The snails are called Roman Snails and are the largest snails in Britain. They're found in the Chilterns, but are rare elsewhere in the country.

We saw lots of Rabbit holes and even saw a few Rabbits.


There were also lots of Orchids starting to flower. I think these are Common Spotted Orchids.

Then we went home for lunch, which was a salad of mixed salad leaves from the garden, with Dandelion, Hawthorn, Wild Garlic and Wild Marjoram (that I sniffed out when I had my head down a Rabbit hole!), topped with a salad dressing made of mushed up nettles and olive oil. Delicious!
