OOOH I have not seen these in ages! Lovely shotWe have the pink ones in the garden, just where you don’t want them
We have a plant like that here in Oregon it’s called Oregon Oxalis (other names include wood sorrel, sheeps sorrel, and sour grass) I don’t know about yours but ours you can eat it tastes like sour apples but if you eat too much you get a tummy ache. I love this shot very pretty!
Thanks for the reply, Jess. yes, apparently different varieties of sorrel have been eaten, all over the world for a very long time! The oxalic acid may cause the digestive problem if you have too much! The English version apparently is not eaten, but the leaves can be dried and used to make a lemon flavoured tea! (We English are soooooo genteel !! :) )
hey thats a great idea I bet we can make tea out of the leaves too O_O
