Here are some lovely images from my foraging challengers. I’m so impressed by their efforts!

Dana has found a herb she has known about since childhood (not for eating) – greater celandine / stinkende gouw – with the yellow flowers. It is a traditional topical remedy for several skin complaints.

Is great to see people branching out from the usual foraging favourites!

I was at work today so took a lunchtime walk past lots of green spaces. Here’s some purple deadnettle growing opposite the Amsterdam Hilton.
