While the Northern Hemisphere has snow, the nearest thing to
snowflakes here are Elder blossom. Unlike the lovely icy fluff
which is hexagonal, these only have five petals but are very useful
medicinally. An infusion of Elderflowers, cooled and sponged on
welts of alergic reactions, clears them up in double quick time.
Most people would heedlessly step on these little beauties.
Less than half an inch across, they grow on paddocks or grass
verges from tiny starchy bulbs and are hard to eradicate. Their
long, tough, grass like leaves are out of place in a garden but
provide good fodder for sheep and a delight to the eye when you
bother to bend down to appreciate their beauty.
