Today has been a day of heavy showers. What with the rain and my feeling out of sorts there is little to report.
The other day I proudly identified this as Common Bistort. KEITH thought it might be Amphibious Bistort. I have spent an entertaining and rainy half hour reading all about it. I’m still not able to identify it with any certainty but am much wiser. It is also known as, Twice Writhen, Adderwort, Snakeweed. It is eaten as a vegetable in spring, is made into a pudding with nettles and barley. The roots are ground up and cure almost every nasty affliction known to man. Have a look……A MODERN HERBAL. Worth a read if it’s raining with you.
The dogs had another good day.
I was trying to get pictures of frogs. I saw frogs but the helpers were not much help.
Have a great, if damp weekend.
