Today, I supported a community clean up in the Woodlands area and helped to tackle the litter problem on the embankment next to the M8 at St Georges Road. During my efforts to de-litter the area, I recorded some of the plants and flowers in the area.
Clover with bees on the edge of the roadway.
Mushrooms growing next to the M8.
Foxgloves amongst the wildflowers.
View of the wildflowers and grasses on the road verge.
The embankment next to the M8 is a vital habitat for wildflowers and supports biodiversity. There is evidence being gathered by Plantlife about the importance of road verges in supporting our rarest plants.
