Look who I found! A sweet, tiny, little baby Ground Ivy (Glechoma hederacae) peeking-up! I love this plant. It's a wonderful anti-catarrhal, especially useful for blockages in the ear, and helpful for upper respiratory congestion in general. In Europe it's widely used as an expectorant and for respiratory troubles of all kinds (esp old coughs) and at one time was a premier treatment for tuberculosis! It's also a nice digestive bitter and a wonderful pot herb. Soon I'll be putting those young tops in every salad I make- yum!  We'll be learning about this locally abundant plant and many others in my bioregional herbalism series, From the Roots Up. Spring session starts April 30th! (Link to register in profile) Happy foraging!
