This delicate beauty, which I am pretty sure is a marshmallow, was in my neighbour’s garden, just across the road from us. The confection that we associate with this name used to be made from the root of this little plant. If this gives you a little thought of sweetness when you hear the name, perhaps a memory of campfires, I hope it brings a bright moment to your day.
