f o e n i c u l u m * v u l g a r e
hubby & I spent the day togther, just the two of us, on Saturday. We explored an (natural) area where we had already been, back in June, with the kids, at that time. We were looking for something to dye with, but it was not the season anymore for the Italian buckthorn & the immortelle flowers we had picked back then. I had the sudden idea of picking something else that was growing abondantly here, and that is not endangered at all, and not dangerous neither. Fennel. Wild fennel, of course. Also know as foeniculum vulgare. I love this plant, fresh or dry, in the spring, summer, autumn or winter.
