Rock Samphire (Crithmum maritimum) growing between Durdle Door and Ringstead on the South West Coast Path. Rock Samphire, or Sea Fennel, is a pungent member of the carrot family with an intensely aromatic, lemony taste.
It probably is used medicinally but I don’t personally have knowledge of this. I’d love to hear about it if you have experience of using it. I do know that in times gone by it was a popular wild condiment, gathered by sure footed cliff foragers and sold in the big cities.
Shakespeare writes this in Act IV of King Lear: “Half-way down hangs that gathers samphire; dreadful trade!” .

What do you think? I thought this red head perfectly matched the wild shore and the strong swirling wind. Nice fact to know: Red hair is centered among populations in the British Isles. So we will ignore the fact that she ☝🏻 clearly dyed her hair. And was Russian. ☺️ Have a great Monday! [ Story about Durdle Door at @stellerstories - link in bio ]
Good morning! I’ve been in a bit of a tidying and organising mood over the last few days. Possibly the result of being inside more thanks to good old Storm Brian.
One particular organisational success was tidying my collection of @stonebridgehair accessories into little baskets to display.
