Healing herbs, Winterthur's got it all!

Successfully threading my way through a day with occasional rain, I forest walkmade my first visit in several weeks to Winterthur Museum and Gardens.  After a rather silly encounter with a woman staffing the visitor center, who told me I needed a mask for the couple of feet I traversed through the visitor center (then said I didn't need one as I went out another door a second later), I proceeded mask free on my hour and a half walk through the gardens.

 

oak leaf hydrangeasThis was a great day for different types of hydrangeas, ranging from the Oak Leaf Hydrangeas to the Smooth Leaf type. One path was lined on both sides with the Oak Leafs.

 

Then I saw a plant thrusting its way upcohash throughthe forest floor in many places on the grounds. Using my Google Lens, I found it was Black Cohash, a herbal remedy for various ills.
