White Comfrey in an Ottoman Graveyard


This is our local wild species of comfrey. I think it's Symphytum orientale, though I've also seen mention of a Symphytum graecum. Here at least, it seems to be less rampant a seeder than borage. Then again it's a perennial and borage is an annual so if every plant remains... It's in my garden anyway so I suppose I'll grow it. I like the pure white flowers.

That is a fine question, yes indeed, you may very well ask just what it was, that it was, I was doing in an Ottoman graveyard!

And the answer is - next post (probably). :)

I'll go check the ground meat recipe, thanks!
