Morning everyone, have a great day. It was lovely to find a tiny flower on my Lungwort yesterday, I’m looking forward to it being in full flower now. 🙋‍♀️💞 #lungwort #common-lungwort #spottyleaves #pink #pulmonaria-officinalis

Morning Jane 😀 what a gross name for such a pretty flower 😂💖

Morning Jane. I have to say I always thought the same as Ange and the origins of the name bear it out. Leaves were thought to resemble rotting lungs so they were used to treat lung disease. Treatments like this were known as ‘sympathetic magic’. That’s my weird garden fact of the day (which you probably already knew 😉) @anges

Morning again Ange, it is isn’t it but it’s such an interesting plant with its spotted leaves and gorgeous pink and blue flowers @anges 💗💙

Morning Val, I’ve read about the treatment for lung disease but I’ve never heard of sympathetic magic, something to read up on later. Thanks for your weird garden fact, it reminds me that every day is a school day @valjones-hughes 😘😍👍
