Random Photo: Another Green Fuse

falls o trailside wildflower

A photo a day keeps the Doctor in play.

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees
Is my destroyer.
And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose
My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.

Dylan Thomas

The above wildflower or maybe invasive weed grows in the shade of the trees along the trail at the Falls of the Ohio, on the Clarksville, Indiana side of the river. Can any of you pilgrims and seekers tell me the name of it?

  1. Nice pictures, as ever, Dr O.

    It looks very like the English plant garlic mustard, or Jack by the hedge, or Alliaria petiolata, which is flowering now. It is classed as invasive in north America. Scroll down the page for a spring image (the first picture that comes up is later in the year). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alliaria_petiolata

  2. Thank you, Anne. Jack by the Hedge. I saw a lot of it yesterday, in the woods along the river, not just on the path. The article says it’s edible and can be used as an herb. I’ll have to taste it now.
