Tread Softly

30 Jul

This is a common plant growing in sunny fields and pastures. I remember trying to pick the flowers as a kid and getting to know personally why another name for this plant is “Finger Rot”!

It has tiny stinging hairs that really pack a punch!

    We used to always call this plant the itchy plant. Its going to be hard replacing that name in my brain with Tread Softly, but I’ll try.
