The plants in park Frankendael seem to have appreciated the sunshine and warmth today…
Elder leaves surging through.
Pretty purple flowers of Lungwort (Pulmonaria officinalis). It doesn’t really do much for the lungs but is said to be of mild medicinal action. It’s a borage family plant so is likely to contain some harmful alkaloids.
Woodland geranium (Geranium species) above.
Not edible but very pretty, crocuses.
Primrose (Primula vulgaris), edible, medicinal but too slow at proliferating to pick at all.
Snow drops, too pretty to pick and poisonous.
Lastly today, Wild garlic (Allium ursinum) with equally edible Yellow archangel (Lamiastrum galeobdolon) with it’s evergreen silvery leaves and toxic Hedge parsley (Torilis arvensis).
