The last of August

My only picture left from August is this one of hemp agrimony. It grows in the damp ditch of the stream next to the footbridge.

The herbals seem to indicate that it's another superplant! A selection of the ailments it is reputed to help include anemia, indigestion, ulcers, diarrhea, sore thoats, coughs, conjunctivitis, headaches, blemishes and sores, aching joints and muscles. (And I left out a lot of problems which are too personal to mention!)

Who needs a pharmacist when a walk in the fields can provide such a wealth of cures?

Where do I Walk?

Mainly in a fairly compact area on the north-east side of Steyning in West Sussex, UK.
