365 Frankendael day 111

I’ve been noticing this Scabious looking plant around the park for a couple of weeks now. It is known as Small Teasel (Dipsacus pilosus) and grows well in damp hedgerows. I don’t think it is known as a useful herb or substitute for Common Teasel (Dipsacus fullonum).


Here is a close up if the tiny flowers produced by Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris). I cut a little today to make a for soak.


Next is Wild Basil (Clinopodium vulgare), setting seed but still easy to identify and eat, should you want to.


Lastly today, Mullein (Verbascum sp.). More for earache and lung complaints than the plate. A stately and useful herb.
