I love spring! Wild flowers are in bloom. Here are some roadside posies I found down near the Shinglemill dock.
This one is called Purple Dead Nettle (lamium purpureum). It's a member of the mint family. When I first saw it as a young green plant I thought it was mint. It is listed as a invasive tenacious weed that originated in Europe. It is supposed to be edible and has herbal properties. Of course, don't eat anything wild that you cannot positively identify as safe. -- Margy
