  1. Seems you're seeing more spring blooms. Do you eat the plantain leaves?

    1. There are bluebells and cowslips everywhere now Gaelyn, the perfume is strong and certainly beats the smell of the past few weeks where the farmers have been spreading liquid and solid manure!!!!!
      No I don't eat plantain, the main reason being I am never 100% sure of my identification!!!! Mushrooms we always get the chemist to check for us. I am a coward when it comes to things growing outside my vegetable garden!!
      Have a good day Diane
