A wall at Buckland Abbey

I was at Buckland Abbey yesterday for a Regional meeting – during one of the breaks I had a look at this wall – smothered in vegetation – seemed to sum up the evolution of plants in one frame – from lichens to liverworts to mosses to ferns through to monocotyledon plants (e.g. grasses) and finally to dicotyledons (e.g. pennywort)
