    A good Friday to you, Nigel. What everyone else said, lovely. I’m curious as to how these taste.. was reading on wiki that common sorrel is edible and can resemble in flavor kiwi or sour strawberries! I’m thinking salad instead of soup πŸ™‚ They’re so pretty, though, perhaps better to leave them to the butterflies and moths. ~Scott

      • Hello Scott,

        Thank for you comment re the images πŸ™‚

        Its official name is “Oxalis acetosella” common name “Wood Sorrel”, Its a bit tangy and if you leave it in your mouth for long enough its fizzes on your tongue.

        It only grows wild and I think only on woodland floors…

        I think is some parts of the world they call it lemon clover but not 100% on that. its packed with Vitamin C but its a bit Toxic so it best only as a dressing. Its prefect if your cooking India food or to dress salad or meat.

        Hope that helps
