Community Garden by Me

The first plant is what I call triple heart clover or wood sorrel. An edible plant that is very tasty and lemony.  I could safely say one of the best tasting wild edibles you could find. This plant is grown all over on lawns, woodland sides, parks, etc.  You can infuse it in sandwiches, but I prefer to use it as a garnish (just eat it raw) in order to preserve the nutrients and  the strong lemony flavor.  The second and third photo I believe is an Iris.  Correct me if I am wrong.  The photos are available for purchase at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-Plants/  You can also purchase my first photo book for $6.98 in PDF format at http://www.blurb.com/b/7135384-here-comes-the-daffodils-series  Enjoy the morning everyone with some good ole photos!

      Good luck with that.. I better a better chance of finding all of these wood sorrel plants. They are all over where I live. Not as much as Dandelions or Clover, but they like to grow around them.

        Dandelions are edible too,and very good for you.We can buy them in the supermarkets during winter,we boil them and serve with olive oil and lemon juice.It’s a nice side dish or just a salad.

        That is so awesome. Supermarkets here I usually go to do not have Dandelions. It is just amazing how people think hunger is an issue, but it is really not if you tell other people of the many things we find nuisance we can actually eat. Modern Western civilization nations have actually begun to introduce insect eating as a means of sustainable food choice for instance. Unfortunately, a lot of Americans cannot get pass the “ick” factor of eating a whole insect.

      Yes. Some clovers are actually edible. The ones I know include white and red clover. I never had white clover, but red clover flower is kind of sweet and the leaves are bitter and a little bland. Wood sorrel is probably one of the best wild plants you can eat.. There is a plant very closely related to wood sorrel called sheep sorrel, because the head is shaped like a sheep’s head. Plus the plant’s flavor is lemony and a little more intense than wood sorrel.

    We used to eat those little heart-shaped clovers when we played outside as children. The green is so soothing in that photo. Blessings!

    That “Iris” looks more like an Aquilegia to me! But then again I am no botanist.

    Hi, Steve!
    I love your pictures, as I am also a gardener. My gardens are full of herbs, so I am tickled to know that clover is also edible.
    I believe your Iris appears to be a Columbine. It is beautiful!

    Keep shooting!

    I am excited to join your blog.

    Sweet peace,
