Still Savouring...

Dropwort - Filipendula Vulgaris
I'm still savouring my walk at the end of July when I saw so many treasures.  This is Dropwort, such a pretty flower referred to as the downland Meadowsweet.  I had never spotted it before.

Culpepper describes it as a diuretic good for stone, gravel and 'stoppage of urine'.  However, most Filipendula are poisonous to some extent or other.  

For all sorts of reasons I have done very little walking this year and I feel much the worse for it.

I love to get out in the country side for a good walk too. I agree, you do feel better for it and so much worse when you have to give it a miss.
