Half-term holidays with walks and wildflowers.
The centre picture brings 3 questions to mind 😊💭😉
Do you like butter?
What time is it?
They love me; they love me not?
Buttercups, dandelions, and daisies don’t have the true answers – but folklore and fun are fine in the context of activities for children and grown-ups alike.
The answers are not evidence-based of course, and thankfully no-one is presuming that they are true.
Communications that are creative but not misleading, which indicate whether a communication is evidence-based or not, are preferable. On a serious note, evidence-based serious science reporting is essential and important, especially for decision making.
Enjoy the rest of the half-term holiday. Here’s to the wildflowers and free-spirited individuals.
Take care. Have fun.

[Photos: I took them this week on a walk close to home up North in England. What can you see? Buttercups, Daisies, Dandelions, Poppies, Nettles, Columbines, and Forget-me-nots]
