This is growing in our paddock...any ideas please?
It looks rather nice!

Oh thanks girls.
This has helped me a great deal.
I am hoping to plant a wild flower meadow just near to it, so I think it will fit in very nicely.

Hmmm... Celandine. The flowers make a wonderful adornment to salads.

I grow three varieties, the common wild one, a white flowered-slightly silver leaved one, and my favourite, a yellow flowered red leaved variety, called 'brazen hussy'. The red, heart shaped leaves are just adorable in a salad.

At last: someone else who grows Brazen Hussey. We also have a double yellow and a wonderful oddity that looks like double green flowers but actually has almost no petals: the 'double' bits are sepals. It's fascinating. Never tried eating them...

They don't taste of much, but the flowers (and red heart shaped leaves of Brazen Hussy) look wonderful.

Apparently (according to Wildfood Junkie) if you dig up the tubers, clean them off and fry them (I think she said fry them) they're really tasty.

We have some of this in the lawn - we always refer to it as the Creeping Christ-Knows-What
