Here be Dragons

Wild Garlic.  Fuji F11
23rd April 2012

I noticed this morning that the Wild Garlic (also known as 'Ramsons' in other parts of the world) is just starting to come into flower.  The wild Garlic is a pretty little flower on a plain green plant that really lets you know it is there if you tread on it.  The leaves can be cooked and used in salads and are considered to be milder than ordinary garlic (I am not sure, but they are still nice).

As it is St. George's day today, it may be worth eating a handful of wild Garlic leaves; you will then have breath that can slay Dragons!
