I’m writing about Self Heal, prunella vulgaris, for next month’s Pagan Pages. I’m lucky enough to have some of the herb crawling over my lawn, and was even luckier to get this lovely visitor when I popped out to get some photos:
As this was growing, prior to flowering, it looked exactly like a gladioli. Not so much now it has flowered! I love having mystery plants move into my garden. We had some cyclamen pop up from nowhere last year. Magical!
