Let’s trip into the wildernis …

What is growing there? The power of wild herbs ♥

Today I was booked again for a herb walk by the VHS in Kropp.

At the meeting point there were also already familiar faces, which I find really nice.

All participants were very kind and this time there were also two small children and even a baby. ♥

As always, we were very lucky with the weather and it was a varied and very beautiful hike.

The children were looking forward to seeing the many frogs at the lake, which unfortunately could only be heard, but there was still a lot to discover there.

We have found and discussed e.g.

  • Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata)
  • Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris)
  • Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica)
  • Cow parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris)
  • Common agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria)
  • Jack-go-to-bed-at-noon (Tragopogon pratensis)
  • Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)
  • Water mint (Mentha aquatica)
  • St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum)
  • Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)
  • Wild carrot (Daucus carota)
  • Ribwort plantain (Plantago lanceolata)
  • Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare)
  • and much more

In the clear water of the lake, besides water mint, you can also find stream fleas, mussels and snails ♥

At the end, of course, everyone got my plant and recipe folder for home again.

I would like to thank all participants and I am already looking forward to the next herb walks at the 10 and 11 June

Today I also remembered to take a few photos ♥
