Flowering: purple aster, monkshood, fireweed, yarrow, vetch,
Fruiting: lingon berry, blueberry, bunchberry, black currant, thimble berry, at least 5 different varieties of mushrooms (is it a fruit or a flower on a fungus?)
Eaten: blueberries, thimbleberries, and a black currant. I'm still not a fan of black currant, but I can see how it would be good as a sauce for pork...
It was remarkable how my perception changed from the first to the second half of my walk. As I released my day on deep inhales and exhales, and really allowed myself to be present in the woods, taking a genuine interest in the plants around, more and more of them showed themselves to my gaze.
It is something that I have noticed with myself and plants, when I move somewhere new, I bring my attention to the medicinal "weeds" that are present and I say hello and invited them to flourish. In each of the last 3 places I've lived, the next year I see a remarkable increase in that/those plants' presence near my home.
My yoga teacher says that "where attention goes, prana flows." It works on so many levels.
