Shepherd's Purse (Capsella bursa pastoris)
What are the essentials that any shepherd carries in his purse, you ask (and more practically, why not a backpack)? Well, naturally, nothing too precious: a staff, a temperature-controlled tea thermos, some light reading material perhaps. But the bag-shaped pods of shepherd’s purse herb carry within them their finest treasures and the stuff of their future: tiny amber seeds. So this plant, which morphs into a heart shape when turned upside down, also carries within it the seeds of security and brightness ahead.
