CJS sponsors a goddess's mirror with Plantlife

Venus's Looking-Glass, a delicate mauve wildflower of arable land that blooms between May and August. Its fused sepals resemble a mirror handle, hence the name.

When selecting this one I managed to get an office dog connection in here! Since Juno (my Queen of the Heavens) all my labs have had classical names so we couldn't resist a Venus now could we?

Plantlife: Wild flowers, plants and fungi are the life support for all our wildlife and their colour and character light up our landscapes. But without our help, this priceless natural heritage is in danger of being lost. As a small charity, each and every one of our members makes a big difference. If you are not already a Plantlife member, please consider joining us today - we'd love to have you on board.

Last year we ran our short readership survey and every completed survey went towards sponsoring plants with former featured charity Plantlife or birds with the Wildlife Trusts, offering you the choice as to which you'd pick. The results were evenly split: 50.7% for birds with the Wildlife Trusts and 49.2% for plants with Plantlife.    

This is the last of the sponsorships arising from the survey. Details of all the sponsorships are here.
