Feb 15th – Plants

When travelling (or even at home), there is an opportunity to learn whilst out and about. We came across a bush with loads of flowers on it, and I wondered what it was.

When I was growing up, you’d have no chance of finding out but nowadays, with mobile phones in our pockets, there is no excuse not to constantly learn about the things around you.

It’s also a good thing that we have these tools as my memory isn’t terribly good so I do re-educate myself a lot. Have I mentioned I have a poor memory?

The app I use for plant identification is called Plantsnap, which takes a photo and then matches the image taken against 585,000 species in its database. Pretty nifty.

It reminds me of a brilliant sketch from Michael McIntyre about our reliance on our phones – It’s just a few minutes long so have a view https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46PgxESLktA

Your challenge today is to learn something new 🙂
