Look what beautiful flower I found! It is a wild flower that belongs to the Geraniaceae family. Flowers are very small, the ones in the picture were not more than 5 mm in diameter. In Romania it is known as The Stork’s Bill, probably from the fact that the fruit looks like a stork’s beak.
As I know, the plant is harvested for use as a food or for therapeutic
Young leaves – raw or cooked are tasty and nutritious. They can be added to salads, sandwiches or soups.
The root can be chewed by children as a gum.
For therapeutic purposes are used the aerial parts of the plant. Infusion is used for internal use in the treatment of intestinal inflammation, as a diuretic remedy against water retention.
