I have another flower blooming in my garden. I only recently learned its name: on Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, Daricia of "A Charlotte Garden" posted that she had Cardamine blooming in her garden. And that is how I discovered what it was. Cardamine is considered a bitter herb, so if you are an herb person, and know what you are doing, there are uses for Cardamine. But PLEASE don't go eat something or make something into to tea just because you read about it here! I don't know much about that subject at all! I did pick and eat some today. I think I like the way it tastes. Salad, anyone? Hey! Maybe it will cure my cold.
There are quite a few of the Cardamine hirsuta plants scattered here and there, for it reseeds itself, but only a few of them, so far, have started to bloom. The white flowers are minuscule and the plants themselves are rather small and low-growing. Did I mention that they are considered noxious, invasive weeds? But I don't like to pull them out, even though I should, because the flowers are so delicate and charming. Besides, might their taproot help loosen the soil, or something beneficial like that?
Have a beautiful day!
SOMETIMES YOU JUST GET LUCKY
