Comments(4) # Chicory london e11

There's not much in flower around here at the moment so it was nice to come across some Chicory growing by the edge of the A12 whilst out running the other day. The root of this plant can be turned into something that tastes absolutely nothing like coffee but which is added to some instant coffees (actually instant coffee tastes nothing like coffee anyway so one might as well add something else to it). The root can also be used for making sweeteners but not very nice ones. Best just to admire the flowers I think. Canon EOS 40D
