the blessed bennet

much used in herbal medicine, the name of this persistent and widespread weed is apparently a corruption of herba benedicta, or blessed herb. Later it develops a fascinating little seed head with sharp hooks for lodging in rough coats, hence no doubt the beneficial effect of hair of the dog. I say eat the dog and forget the herbs. No, I don't. Posted by Picasa
