A wonderful and very exciting herb walk with a surprising visit.
This time too, contrary to all forecasts, the weather gods were more than merciful and I had some great participants.
In bright sunshine, we set off at around 2 p.m. and, as always, there were many beautiful things to discover.
Among other things, we found and discussed these beautiful plants:
Black mullein (Verbascum nigrum)
Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria)
Wild thyme (Thymus serpyllum)
St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum)
Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare)
Ribwort plantain (Plantago lanceolata)
Rare butterfly (Lesser Firefly)
At the picnic we had an unexpected, trusting and deeply relaxed visit from “Lotte” 💞😘🦋🌿🙏 a Galloway lady. Simply beautiful.
For dinner, we had vegetarian wraps with couscous vegetable filling and cheesecake. The tea was a herbal blend of lavender, lime and rose petals and citronella grass, as well as a wild berry tea with woodruff.
I am very grateful for being able to do and live this and look forward to the next time.
