Just one little hedgerow scene today, by one that is typical of many in Amsterdam and one that is packed full of nutrients, great taste and people’s medicine.
There’s a Hawthorn shrub at the back with a small Elder nestling in its shade, right against its trunk. There are lots of healthy Stinging nettles, ground ivy, some Burdock, a little Fat hen here and there and heaps of super vibrant Plantain. All such useful plants are so plentiful in this and most other European cities. This patch of hedgerow is right by one entrance to the park and is mostly overlooked by people walking into the park or parking up their bikes.
