My first leisurely walk in the park for some time, today. There is so much edible plantlife to be seen and so many signs which foretell what the spring will offer.
Firstly Russian Comfrey (Symphytum uplandicum x)
Ivy (Hedera helix), not so much edible as useful in other ways. The second Ivy photo shows a plant with usual leaves, some of 7 lobes.
Next is woodland floor Geranium.
Ground ivy and then Garlic mustard, growing amongst a lovely willow woven structure.
Also beside the willow, Ground Elder.
Witch Hazel, one of the most amazingly vibrant shrubs of early spring of already showing signs of its flowers.
A stately Oak.
And two beautiful green Amsterdam parrots.
There used to be dozens of chickens, living wild in Park Frankendael. They were cleared out several years ago. Today we met this little lovely, in the middle of the woodland. I have hope that there are more in the park.
