Does anyone know what these leaves are called? They grow on the grounds in the bush. They're an odd heart-ish shaped leaf with a long stem. Inside the stem is a white stringy fibre (usually visible when you pick them). When you peel the fibre out it rips all the way up and it has a spearmint taste. I've been eating these since I was young. Any ideas as to what they're called ?! ImageUploadedByHomesteading Today1409005518.881649.jpg ImageUploadedByHomesteading Today1409005540.990351.jpg

It's a violet.
Totally non-harmful in any way and lovely in the spring.
You can make violet jelly and just the violet 'tea' that you use for the jelly is delicious!

Really? A violet? That's so weird! How do you make the tea?
