Day 22 UH foraging challenge

Here is a selection of recent photos from some of the foraging challengers. They have been very busy…

Leonie has found some lovely plants. I thought this looked like Meadowsweer on first glance but the flowerhead looks more like a celery family plant (Apiaceae). That with a red stem sets alarm bells ringing. I think we need some close ups of this one Leoniek.

and this bright flowering plant seems to belong to the Lamiaceae family but what is the name.. Gypsywort has similar serrated leaves but completely different flowers.

and a super patch of waterside Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris). Those dead flower stems from last year make it very easy to find.
