Unopened Bud and Wilted Daylily (Sad Face)

Join the quest for knowledge in seeking excellent delicious flower buds of Daylilies.  Here in NY, we have Tawny Lilies also called Tiger Lilies.  There are also  species of Yellow Daylilies that are used mostly for gardening, but there are some that are used in traditional Chinese medicine and culinary.  Tawny Lilies are also considered invasive in some areas of the US, but make an excellent garden companion with other plants.  Photos available at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-Plants/

The Ultimate Wood Sorrel!

Join the cult of having this delectable  treat of wild wood foods.  Wood Sorrels are known as Shamrocks, closely related to clovers.  Clovers tend to have more bitter flavoring while sorrels tend to be more sour.  Probably my favorite foraging food, it is a great food to mix with especially if you just want to eat something raw or cook it with onion or spicy flavored plants.  Photos available at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-PlantsIMG_1434 copyIMG_1435 copyIMG_1439 copy

Stinging Nettles!

Beware of these delicious looking nettles.  They are not poisonous, but will give you a sting that can a few minutes.  Also known as Stinging Nettles, they are easily recognizable for their stinging hairs found at the stem.  Eaten raw, it can be unappetizing.  When cooked with vegetables whether oniony or lemony, it can be an excellent choice of nutritional balance for your body.  This plant can also be used to make a healthful tea. Nettles are available from early spring until late fall when they start dying off due to oncoming low temperatures.   Photos available at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-Plants/
