Fold the South Coast of England in half - and you'll find Weymouth with Dorchester a little to the north. That's the part of Dorset where I live. LOOSE AND LEAFY describes and documents the hedgerows and coastal plants of the area. It changes from time to time but leaves and twigs nearly always get a look in. 

Please note - I am a complete and utter amateur. This is a blog about seeing what's here - I'm not scientific. Mistakes may creep in from time to time - and, if they do, I apologise. Please let me know if you see a mis-identification or find you are able to add points of interest from your own knowledge. I will be pleased - really.
