White wild flowers: Daisies and milfoil (yarrow). They grow in the meadows.
Milfoil, Achillea millefolium, known commonly as yarrow or common yarrow. In Russia
milfoil is named "Tysyachelistnik" (The herb with
1000 leaves). Good name: how many leaves has this herb, what do you think?
The herb is purported to be a diaphoretic, astringent, tonic, stimulant
and mild aromatic. It contains isovaleric acid, salicylic acid, asparagin,
sterols, flavonoids, bitters, tannins, and coumarins. The plant also has a long
history as a powerful 'healing herb' used topically for wounds, cuts and
abrasions. The genus name Achillea is derived from mythical Greek character,
Achilles, who reportedly carried it with his army to treat battle wounds.
