Shepherd's PurseCapsella Bursa-Pastoris (Brassicaceae)
It is everywhere...
I first saw it in the books and then I realised that it was very easy to find...in my way to work..I was soo excited.
It has heart shaped seed cases along the stem, resembling an old-fashioned leather purse.
I have read that if Shephers's purse is fed to chicken, the egg yolks become darker.
The photograph is mine..I found the plant just by my office. I was soo happy to be able to identify it!!
Stops bleeding of all sorts: from nosebleeds to blood in the urine.
It was used in the First World War battles to staunch bleeding from wounds.
It aslo has an ability to correct prolapses, specially of the uterus but also bladder, moving the organs back into their correct positon.
