| The dandelions were thick.|
......dandelion wine (medicinal of course :-)
......leaves and roots are diuretic
......a great source of potassium
|The dogwood was in full bloom.|
I do not use this medicinally, but
show it to compare with elderberry.
Anything blooming right now in northern
Wisconsin is NOT elderberry....they will be the next set of blooms.
|The red elderberry was in full bloom also.|
This is NOT the elderberry you pick medicinally.
These blossoms and berries will give you one upset stomach.
Again, the medicinal elderberry will bloom in about 2 weeks.
|.....I could have eaten the fiddleheads|
of these ferns a few weeks earlier.
Just pretty now.
