My Wife And History

My wife E, seen in the context of history, may be at the tail end of those who once knew about the medicinal and food plants of Africa -- as a working knowledge rather than a specialised knowledge. It is interesting, too, that while she knows nothing about some of the things I learnt at school, she knows much about things I know nothing about. Our local urban park cultivates many medicinal and food plants once used by indigenous peoples. I took the photo this morning, of an indigenous Khokhoi tea. I think that this one is a remedy for worms.
