Tansy
Comments(4) # Tansy london e17

The Tansy, also known as Mugwort (excellent name!), is a weird flower, particularly at this stage when the buds look almost liquid. Each head is about a centimetre across and consists of concentric circles of minute little florets. Fascinating to try and work out which bit is which! It has historically been used both as a medicinal 'erb and also as a flavouring compound though it is in fact poisonous. So don't eat it! Canon EOS 5D
