In mid-summer the yellow flowers of Lady’s Bedstraw, (Botanical name: “Galium verum”) are abundant in the pastures of the Aran Islands.
As the name suggests it was formerly used as a pleasantly smelling filling material for bedding. It was also thought to deter creepie-crawlies of various sorts.
It has had other uses in the home such as curdling milk for cheese-making and medicinal uses such as stopping bleeding.
This bedstraw was photographed near Dun Eochla Stone Fort

This is part of my new postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card .
