That would be so beautiful to look at the oxalis all spread out that way. I think that you can put these plants in salads. They would have a sour taste, wouldn't they ? The Oxalis pes caprae plant is also called soursob. That grows like crazy here in Australia. Many thanks for the link as well. I will take a look at that soon. It's nearly time to call it a night here...

In springtime, we have Common Wood Sorrels (Oxalis acetosella) all over the woods in HUGE carpets. They spread like wildfire, and are most pleasnt to look at. As a kid, I used to eat the leaves and flowers, and I still occasionally do... read 'Use by humans' and you'll see how plants in the genus Oxalis have been and are used... ;-)

Many thanks, Poppy. Oxalis is one of my favourite flowers and I have plenty of them on my balcony. I even like the ones they call weeds. To me, they are still very pretty to look at... :)

What a sweet little flower, Mary.
