~ Wild Herb Walk ~

I found these beautiful flowers growing in the front yard , never really noticed them before. The plants are called Cat's Ear , they're in the dandelion family. I'm not sure if they're edible , but they sure are pretty .

I finally got a descent photo of Yellow Wood-Sorrel.

I got a photo with the blooms closed. Does that sorrel close up at night?

Thanks for showing me the sorrel.
I'll have the check the bloom
when I go by during the day. I'll
take my camera and get a pick to
see if it is the same.

Fun herb walk and pretty blooms!

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Hi Flassie , The blooms do close at night , they also develop a seed pod from the bloom.

Hej Joyce Ann,

I put up two photos of
the Yellow Sorrel. Well
I do not know if it is
or not.
The shape of the petals
look different than the
one in your photo. Same
color though.

I might go and get another
photo with less light. It
was taken around 3 pm. So
it isn't as clear as I'd
like it to be.

Notice how the leaves lay
to the sides when the blooms
are open and when they are
closed the leaves purk up a

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Hi Flassie , I just visited your blog and saw the pics. It is sorrel but not the same kind , that's why the leaves look different.
Do an internet search on the two I mentioned , it's hard to see details with pics. There are several species of sorrel , they're all edible my field guide said.

Ok I'll do a search.

They are smaller than the
first sorrel I found out
about many moons ago.
They might look larger in
the photo. But the leaves
are small too. Unlike the
large leaves I've seen on

I put it back in draft
until I get lots a people
to give to Pino's Pies Events.

Thanks for the info.

It was either I took to much
of a close-up or the time of
day was to bright or both reasons
the photos didn't come out clear.

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Flassie , the soil conditions and location have alot to do with growth. I think it grows larger in shaded areas , the sorrels I've seen in my garden are small , but the sorrels in the woods have larger leaves.
