Can you remember popping the bubbles on these ? I like the smell and feel of seaweed, and fried in my local takeaway!

Still pop-em!

And the smell is fantastic. (Except when it rots!)

What I can't remember is the name of this particular seaweed - and I haven't yet got round to looking it up. When I do, I'll change the title.

Hi, not an expert on seaweed but I think it is Ascophyllum nodosum. makes excellent fertiliser. Great pic by the way.

I like its texture and can almost feel its smell. Thanks!

Lucy Corrander said...

Gary, thanks for the suggested identification for the seaweed.

I think you are right.

I remain just slightly uncertain though because it is so very black. I know much depends on its state of dryness but, when I took this photo, there didn't seem to be any green in sight, either on this rock or the ones nearby.

(I was thinking of going on a guided walk along the sea-shore today but forgot until it was too late to set out. It was to look at the flowers - thrift etc. but I expect the guide would have known about seaweeds too. I think the next walk will be looking for fossils but I have visitors next weekend, complete with ten month old baby, so I expect I'll be missing that too!)

Whatever it is . . . I like it!

Tatyana - I like the idea of you feeling the smell of seaweed!
