A Cotswold Year - Charting the seasons in the South Cotswolds

White Bryony

We seem to spend a lot of time pulling this little plant out of the garden hedges as it is somewhat invasive but today I stopped and looked more closely and realized it is quite pretty. It is the only native British member of the cucumber family but beware if you grub it up as the roots are toxic and have been reported to kill cattle.
