Northern hemisphere meadow magic in May: This is ribwort plantain in flower: not only a healing herb, its blossoms are
truly fairy-like and meadow-magical, don’t you think?.
If you catch the buds before they go into flower, though,
they make an interesting addition to a salad or an omlettte.
Sautéed lightly in a little olive oil and/or butter, the buds add a nutty-mushroomy flavour dimension to light spring-time meals.
