European adventures & wyld foragings

Updated: Oct 9, 2021

I find myself in my travels, always looking to the local plants to see what I can see. To see what I can eat and use as herbal medicine. Until I go for a nice long walk in the landscape of a place, I don't feel totally grounded. Only after my forest walks do I feel to begin to understand the land, I find drinking some fresh river water always helps to assimilate and adjust.

Here's some of the wyld herbal medicine I found along my wanderings through Europe. So different to the medicinals of the Australia forests I live in.

Life is abundant with.. Life!

Hedera helix grows wyld everywhere! Ironically the sudden cool autumnal weather soon had me using the Ivy for respiratory congestion.

Verbascum thapsus growing through the pavements. Mullein would have also been great for my lungs! But the Ivy did the trick just fine :)

Geranium robertinium, or Herb Robert, on the side of the road, so tasty and so everywhere!
