365 Frankendael day 123

Thank you Dennis Breedijk for this tasty photo of Raspberry (Rubus ideaus) growing in a bush near Amsterdam. Apart from being a mighty fine fruit shrub, Raspberry leaves remain a well known and often used remedy during some stages of pregnancy. They are said to specifically tone the uterus and help prepare it’s muscles for childbirth.

Here is a lovely closeup of the flowering part of Common Hemp Nettle (Galeobdolon tetrahit).

Some more information about it on day 107. thank you Joop Eisenberger for this photo. I’m finding a pink flowering version of this plant on holiday, at the moment.


Here’s another of Joop’s photos, taken the other day, NL: Meisjesogen (Coreopsis verticillata) Coreopsis,
There’s a beautiful, new, wild flower meadow in Frankendael. It is next to Restaurant de Kas and every time I pass it, there are different flowers coming in and out of their blooming period. At the moment, this edible flower is in bloom, there are hundreds of them to see there. Very pretty, I have never tasted itbut look forward to trying one soon. I love the Dutch name for this plant, it means Little girls eyes.
