Shepherd's Purse weed

Capsella bursa-pastoris

Description:

Love the heart shaped seed pods of the Shepherd's Purse weed that is growing everywhere at the moment. And it has such a sweet name! Tried to catch a glimpse of the seeds in the last shot in this series.

Habitat:

Vegetable crop fields, orchards, vineyards, nurseries, gardens and roadside.

Notes:

Apparently the leaves, seeds or rather the whole plant is edible and is a medicinal plant or herb!(br) Info: https://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh...
