I rode over to High Park on my bike earlier this evening to take some photos of plants and get some exercise. It was nice to be in the good air. The flower above is Nigella (not sure which species this one is) also known as love-in-a-mist or devil-in-the-bush. I can't help but think that sounds a little dirty but it was probably meant to be scary.
I got stung bad on the leg by stinging nettle. I know where it is in the park and make a point to watch for it but a piece managed to brush against my leg ever-so-lightly. That's all it takes. I'm very sensitive to it. It still hurts hours later. I think stinging nettle is a great medicinal plant but damn it hurts like a bitch.
