Here’s Hemlock!

Here’s one for the tabloids!
Hemlock is a notoriously poisonous plant – indeed it is reputedly what did for Greek philosopher Socrates when he was executed.
Gordon Ridgewell, photographer extraordinaire, tells us: “ The hemlock is on the march at Littlebury this year and has reached about 10 feet in height.”
No need to panic, but watch what you eat out there!
