Mullein It Over

One man’s weeds are another man’s flowers.  Generally considered a nuisance, the mullein is actually used in herbal remedies with emollient and astrigent properties.  Homeopaths also use the plant for cough remedies and in topical applications for a variety of skin ailments.  Interesting background, but I was just impressed at the beauty of the mullein shown here growing through the cracks of this cobblestone walk.
