Online Herbalism Courses for all levels

It was a truly joyful experience going out for our first hike of the “spring-like” season.  Beneath the melting snow you could see plants at the beginning of their life.  To see green breaking through the mass of white surrounding us was delightful!  My husband took some great photos of baby herbs and I wanted to share them with you.

When herbs are this young it can often be difficult to identify them accurately.  I have added latin and common names to the photos that I (and my fellow herbal students) am 100% sure about.  Please feel free to add comments if you know one the identification of one of the photos!!

Equisetum hyemale – Horsetail

Potentilla recta – Sulfur cinquefoil

Fragaria spp. – Wild strawberry

Leucanthemum vulgare – Ox-eye Daisy
