The Yorkshire weather has not been in our favour this week - lots of dark clouds looming on the horizon...
But despite the cold, wind and rain, we managed to get out on a couple of dry days, sampling a variety of urban habitats across Leeds...
|Pavement in Headingley|
|Car park in Holt Park (yes, there were a couple of dandelions!)|
|Verge in Meanwood (excellent quadrat placement despite the obstacles)|
|Allotment in Meanwood|
Fieldwork is not just about counting flowers and hunting for pollinators - if you look around you, sometimes you will come across some unexpected delights.
|Can you spot the real frog hiding under the violets in a garden pond?|
