When is a weed not a weed?
... when you make it into soup.
Just take some of these:
add an onion and a couple of potatoes and turn them into this:
I thought I'd posh it up with a swirl of cream but I didn't have any so I used milk which as you can see is not quite the same!
When I first made nettle soup years ago I just used nettles and onion, but it was really strong and I find it tastes better with potato in.
It was my favourite kind of sky this morning when the sun's shining but the sky is steely blue. I've tried to capture it with this greengage blossom against it but it was much better in real life
The colour of these Dutch hyacinths really shines out in the sunshine
