What's outside


diolch am dy ateb! I’ll take a look online.
Thanks for the answer! I will take a look at the book and probably get it anyway. I’d really like to find some sort of book that has pictures and the names of the plants and trees in welsh. I don’t know if you know of any? Or indeed if anyone else has a good reference book for wild flowers, plants, and trees?


Iolo William’s “Llyfr Natur Iolo” is without a doubt the best book to get! :slight_smile: The photos are fabulous and its in Welsh with a Welsh index and an English index :slight_smile:

Mae’n nhw’n yn dwp iawn… Mae eu masgiau ddim yn gorchuddio eu synau na’u cegau.


I think I found some by the river after a perilous scramble down the bank.

Oenanthe crocata, cegiden y dŵr.
And here’s what happens if you eat just a tiny bit.

Also seen, a much nicer plant.
Salsify (or oyster plant), Tragopogon porrifolius, barf-yr-afr gochlas.
Lovely name, and you can see why when you look at the seed head.


Ok I am definitely going to get this! Thank you!!

The picture of the female brood chaser is so crisp and clear. I don’t think I could get close enough with my iphone to take a photo like that; what are you using to take your photos? Diolch!


Heno, welais i ceirw, (beth yw’r enw ar ‘fawn’ yn Gymraeg, unrhyw un ?}


My dictionary has “fawn” (animal) as elain or hydd ifanc (technically that last, I think, is “young stag”)
