#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

News from the meadow: lamb's tongue

"Plantago lanceolata is a species of flowering plant in the plantain family Plantaginaceae. It is known by the common names Englishplantain, narrowleaf plantain, ribwort plantain, ribleaf and lamb's tongue. It is a common weed of cultivated land." [Wikipedia]

To learn the names of all the flowering weeds I find, I choose the most poetic one to remember it by: Lamb's Tongue, which I find growing in the meadow very near the forget-me-nots peeking through the grass.
