 Water Lily in Iain & Carol's pond


 Angelica is said to be a very good tonic herb for women and children, the elderly or general debility, it is said to strengthen the heart. Powdered root is said to cause disgust for liquor. It has an antibacterial action, preventing the growth of various bacteria. N.B. The fresh root of Angelica is not edible, and is said to be poisonous. Do not use Angelica while pregnant or breastfeeding without consulting your doctor.

Little candied diamonds of angelica stem were used to decorate cakes and trifles when we were children.
