The Old Dog Decides To: Count My Blessings And Not My Problems Part 11! On my hike ...
... yesterday I saw a flowering plant that I had often seen before but I had no idea what it was. Thanks to my new attitude regarding discovering, learning about and appreciating the world around I’ve found out the following:
Cow Parlsey, a species of Chervils it has the botanical name “Anthriscus Sylvestris”.
Cow parsley is sometimes mistaken for several similar-looking poisonous plants such as poison hemlock and fool's parsley.
It is considered to be edible, though having a somewhat unpleasant flavour. It is somewhat sharper than garden chervil, with a hint of carrot, to which it is related.
Cow Parsley can also be confused with giant cow parsley or giant hogweed the sap of which can cause severe burns if it comes into contact with the skin.
Remember, during this time of crisis look around and enjoy what you have.
You can’t appreciate if you don’t look!
