Bluebell, conker, buttercup... these are familiar words conjuring up the changing seasons and a relationship with nature that we have enjoyed since we were children. But in a move that surprised many, the Oxford Junior Dictionary left the above words out of their latest edition. This is not because the Dictionary is anti-nature; it is simply a reflection that, for may children today, dandelions, acorns and horse chestnuts are not relevant. Other nature-related words left out of the Oxford Junior Dictionary include: Adder, ash, beech, blackberry, bramble, brook, catkin, clover, cowslip, cygnet, fern, fungus, gorse, hazel, hazelnut, heather, heron, holly, ivy, kingfisher, lark, magpie, minnow, newt, otter, pansy, pasture, poppy, porpoise, primrose, raven, starling, stoat, stork, thrush, sycamore, violet, weasel, willow and wren. This calendar celebrates the beauty of some of the flowers, plants and fungi omitted, reminding us of their splendour and importance.
