Close up of a wild plant, often found growing along the hedgerows of Ireland. There are about thirty different varieties of Angelica, one of which is  used for medicinal purposes – from curing the bite of a mad dog to causing a disgust for spirituous liquors.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Close Up.”

  4. My gardening pulse quickens at the sight of that gorgeous flower. We have something similar called Queen Anne’s Lace, and I love that as well. Great close up. 🙂
