Hypericum, St. John's Wort
Hypericum, St. John’s Wort

A bright display of flowers that dots the roadside and fields is this plant covered with these tiny, yellow blooms. Close inspection shows the perfect detail in the design and the lovely spray of stamens. I probably pass thousands of those on every walk and am blunted to the beauty by how widespread they are. It just shows that something you see all the time is worth a close inspection and a brief moment of admiration, Don’t let familiarity dull appreciation. Hugs to all, friends.

  1. It is such a dear innocuous looking plant but one that pack a mighty punch medicinally. This plant has played a role in herbal treatments for centuries and now in our modern pharmacology. Known for its adverse side effects and drug interactions, this bright and cheerful sunny bloom is best left where it is found and appreciated for its sunny disposition alone. I, for one, am happy to applaud its aesthetic contribution to the countryside. Thank you, Ellie, for today’s posey of sunshine.

    1. Of course I have used it homeopathically many times, so it is wonderful to see it in the natural state! Thank you for reminding us of the power of this lovely little flower, not only beautiful but also mighty! Thanks for the informative comment, Janet.

  2. Good morning Ellie. It is a lovely little flower. I have to agree that sometimes when there’s an abundance around we neglect to look closely. So thanks again for sharing the flowers so we can look close at them and see their true beauty. Hugs back to you and Steve hope you have a great day.

    1. It’s always my pleasure to share intimate details of the familiar countryside flowers, as you know, Linda. Thank you so much for the kind wishes and the comment. Have a great day yourself.
