Flowers are popping and bursting everywhere! It’s thrilling to see let alone feel the sunshine. After long months of cold and wet and clouds, spring has sprung. Hooray! As you know, Dear Readers, I believe in foraging from my surroundings but be careful because common spring blooms like hyacinth and foxglove and daffodil are poisonous so don’t eat the daffodils but go for the violets instead. Violets are blooming and besides being charming and yummy are good for you. Violets contain rutin, which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (mercola.com). Not bad for a delightful purple sweetie most people barely notice.
