365 Frankendael day 353

More and more green life by the second!

Japonica flowers are still blooming vibrantly and tastily.

And also lovely patches of Purple deadnettle (Lamium purpurum) in flower.

They make a nice addition to general cooking and have many medicinal virtues.

And probably my favourite street herb Hollyhock (Alcea rosea) is really starting to leaf up now.

I met a woman at the local playground yesterday who mentioned using Hollyhocks as growing support stakes, amongst tomato plants. A lovely idea.
