365 Frankendael day 145


Just an autumn photo of a Hugo de Vrieslaan today. Late to work, lots to do.. I just thought it looked nice to see the Lime leaves (Tilia spp.) beginning to fall. There’s still time to harvest a few fresh green leaves if you’d like a stock for winter infusions and other Lime medicine. Lots of the local Limes have enormous burrs on their lower trunks, each offers hundreds of leaves in an unusual location and making it easy to harvest a handful. So there’s no need to shin up a 50 foot tree trunk.
