When we were in Bicton Park near Exeter there were a lot of Burdock plants (Arctium of the family Thistle) with burrs on them. It was interesting that the burrs would stick to me but if you threw them at my trousers, for example, they wouldn't adhere. Apparently theses burrs were the inspiration for Velcro. Are these, I wonder, the fuzzies that Heather referred to recently?
