Very pretty, but they're not bull rushes... they're reed maces. I blame the Victorians.

well, I dunno. sure look like bullrushes to me. at least the ones with the thick brown seed head.
Typha latifolia? what's a reed mace?

Sorry, I was thinking of bulrush with 1 L, not two. It's probably comes of watching/listnening to too many trivia-based shows, my fault entirely. I heard that what we commonly think of as bull rushes are really reeds and not rushes at all, but they were included in a painting of baby Moses in the bul(l)rushes, and the name stuck to the wrong plant. This may or may not be true. There are a whole load of bulrushes of genus Scirpus which look a lot more sedge-like and less reedy. I guess it comes down to the difference between rushes and reeds (and relentless, out of place pedantry of course for which I will try to get help) and I'm not that kind of biologist, so, out of my depth, I will run (probably squelching) away and try not to lose my wellies on the way out! :)

I half overheard a mace vs bullrush debate while I was snapping a similar pic one day. Spider: I'm happy to get a clear explanation or link. Thanks swamprose and Caine.

Naah! Whenever I come over all plantified I just pretend I'm Charles Darwin or that black guy pretending to be David Bellamy.

Spiderbaby says:

What? Saying there's no climate change? Or grabbing hand-fulls of moss - that's the David Bellamy I'd like to remember anyway :(

No! Lenny Henry being David Bellamy on Tizwaz. *The florwa, and the fworna and the little cweatures... *

I <3 speech impediments and often affect them. I've just spent a week visiting a hospital where everyone pitied me because of my dweadful lispth...

Spiderbaby says:

Ah! I remember it now (though I was very small at the time!). Yes, that's something to aspire to alright :) That, or Darwin.
