365 Frankendael day 107

Edible Geranium flowers at a street cafe in Oost Watergraafsmeer.


Buzzing honey bees on flowering White Bryony (Bryonia alba) which is poisonous but clearly valuable to city wildlife.


Common Hemp Nettle (Galeobdolon tetrahit), in flower, prickly, square seemed labiate and easily identified. Edible and medicinal. This plant is an annual so if you harvest any leave the flowers intact to seed. Here’s a link to some basic information about the plant.


Lastly today, a mini meadow of Soapwort (Saponaria officinalis) again, in Park Frankendael.
