Asparagus

We have some asparagus which has flowered and is going to seed.

Asparagus has been used by florists as greenery in funeral bouquets.  As a result, it often grows wild in cemeteries,  especially around the fences in rural cemeteries.  When I was a child, my mother would take us to a couple of local ones to pick the wild asparagus.  It was not a big part of the local diet so my friends never knew what it was when I talked about it.
