I thought that it was a seed pod of sorts but I didn’t want to to remove it for analysis, it was one of several in a bunch, each about four-five inches in length approx. three feet above ground level in amongst mixed thistles and grasses and rough vegetation by the side of a ditch.
At first sight they looked a bit like young cucumbers.
Any ideas !
My thanks again to the ever helpful Dr Peter Llewellyn, who responded with a minimum of delay.
'' Hello John, try Yellow Flag (Iris pseudacorus) fruit under Google images and see if that is like the thing you saw.
Regards, Peter L. ''
Spot on Peter, many thanks once again.
Did any one get it right ?.
