Brunnera macrophylla 'Jack Frost' (Brunnera macrophylla (Brunnera))

There was a farmer's market in the village last weekend and I bought this little Jack Frost plant that I had been admiring when posted by other GoYers :)

He'll be back, Sandra - may take a while but he'll be back! Cambridge biologist Annie Forster claims to have discovered a 'significant homing instinct' after an experiment which involved marking 60 snails with Tippex and throwing them over a garden fence.

She found that many of the creatures returned to the same spot - even without a trail to follow.

'I went out on successive evenings with a torch and counted how many came back,' said Mrs Forster. 'We started this at the end of May, just as a bit of fun really, and by August 3 I found that about 60 per cent had returned.'

'When one considers the damage caused by the lobbing, the being eaten by hedgehogs and birds on the exposed towpath and the crunching underfoot by early-morning joggers, this suggests a significant homing instinct instinct, term used generally to indicate an innate tendency to action, or pattern of behavior, elicited by specific stimuli and fulfilling vital needs of an organism. ,' she told Radio 4's Today programme.

You're fighting a losing battle, my friend. :-))
