What a pretty pink on the wood sorrel! All of it around here is yellow.


I think I've seen yellow ones somewhere around here.
When we were little, there was a patch of them nearby. And we would march out there, and eat some 'heartleaves'(as we called them) :P

I do believe that looks a mite like oxalis or sorrel. Very similar if not the same as the shamrock. It is sour tasting but I liked to nibble on it as a kid.
I ain't dead yet. I don't know if Yule Gibbons ever tried it.

Sure is purty though!


Very pretty. In the UK we call that one 'pink oxalis' and we have a similar white one we call 'wood sorrel' that tastes super as well.

More flower pix please!

I don't think..:? If it is, we got weeds growing in our garden! :P


If you look closely, you can see that at the bottom left center of the flower, there's a spider leg! HAHA :P

In Oklahoma, the edible heart shaped leaves with pink undersides are called sheepshower. They have a tart taste, which comes from a small amount of a somewhat toxic substance. Kids used to mix them with water and call it sheepshower wine.
