The bark stripped away, the pared remains a deathly grey brown. All things must come to an end.

Herb-Robert is easy to spot by its smell and small veined pink flowers. "Various theories have been advanced to account for the name of this plant. The most probable one is that it is named after Robert, the French Abbot who founded the Cistercian Order at the end of the 11th century. Another theory has it that the herb was used to cure a disease known in Germany as Robert's Plague, hence its name. Old Culpepper says that Herb Robert is good for staying blood, healing wounds and curing ulcers." (British Wild Flowers, C. A. Hall)
