Day 14 – UH foraging challenge

More lovely photos today…

From Ann in Spain, beautiful flowers which look rather like a type of lily or Allium. Not seeing the whole plant, the flower could belong to a sort of Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum angustifolium). It also looks almost like Allium molly but white rather than yellow…

And here a beautiful plant which could be a type of chives or a small scabious (Scabiosa columbaria). Those leaves look too slender for scabious.. Very pretty, whatever it is.

And from Hannah, at the Dutch dunes, a Celery family plant and a mallow. Alexanders are my favourite from the celery family.

And I found lots of Dutch spring snow as I walked to work today – the seeds of Elm trees (Ulmus), on Beethovenstraat. Not a place to forage from but I’ll find this falling in clean places over the next few weeks.
