Has your little boy or girl bring these "flowers" to you? And have you thought them to be "just weeds"?
Me too. Until one day, I was looking a facebook friend's profile, in which she had shared a picture of one of these "pretty weeds", and someone told her it was called Texas Toad Flax. And it isn't a weed. It is an herb!
I found this very interesting, as I am trying to learn more about herbs. I even bought a correspondences course to become a "family herbalist". Slowly, but surely, I am making my way through it. ;-)
But anyway, back to the original topic.
Since, this is such a common "weed" I thought I'd share about it. It makes me stop and think what other things we call "weeds" are really useful herbs?
Here is a link to showing a detailed description of this herb:
