Herb Robert

What lovely widflowers, so pretty, so delicate. They were everywhere in the woods in Prince Edward County, so I decided to look them up.

The funny things you find out on wikipedia:

Called Herb Robert, aka Death Come Quickly, or Stinky Bob (!)

Crushed leaves smell like burning tires (!)

Uses: repels mosquitoes, attracts good luck, and remedies nosebleeds (!)

Huh. Maybe knowledge is overrated. Let’s just sit back and enjoy the pretty wildflowers.
