365 Frankendael day 93

This is for Mirjam, who asked for the Dutch name of this plant and what it looks like. It is Plantago major, Plantain in English and Weegbree in Dutch. It is a very useful first aid and wound herb, is good to eat (if you cut out those stringy veins), good to juice, good for skin ointment recipes, for a multitude of ailments and I ran a workshop on the plant and its close cousin Ribwort, last week.
