Hepatica triloba Chaix(= H.nobilis Miller; Anemone hepatica)
M.Lonzina m.234 Parco Naturale Colli Euganei
Latitude 45░21'75" N
Longitude 11░43'73"E
Natural Order, Ranunculaceae. This is a small plant common to mountain and hill sides.Leaves all radicle, on peduncles three to five inches long, three- lobed, heart-shaped at the base, rather thick and tough, faintly purple beneath, mottled white above, persistent through the winter. Flower stems several in number from the roots, as high as the leaf-stalks, each bearing a single pale bluish-purple flower, closely subtended by a three-leaved involucre. March and early April.
Properties and Uses: This little plant has enjoyed an almost fabulous reputation, in some sections, for the treatment of coughs, phthisis, spitting of blood, liver complaints, etc. It is a mild article, slightly tonic and astringent, with a fair portion of demulcent property, and is of some use in the maladies named; but I am satisfied that its action is extremely mild, and that it has been quite over-praised. A decoction of two ounces in a quart of water, reduced to a pint, may be drank freely. It is usually combined with other pectoral tonics in the form of sirup.

Ciao Fabrizio,
benvenuto su TN; splendida macro di Hepatica triloba, ripresa da un ottimo punto di vista con perfette messa a fuoco e nitidezza, avevo giÓ visto ieri questa immagine, ma vedo che hai capito come presentarla meglio, le critiche Ŕ meglio scriverle normalmente e non con giudizi simbolici (+++) ed inoltre Ŕ sempre bene accompagnare l'immagine con delle note per essere utili a chi non conosce la specie.
Buon proseguimento con nuove belle immagini, forse sei vicino ai Colli Euganei, sui quali prima o poi far˛ delle escursioni a caccia di fiori e di farfalle e se capita anche di uccelli
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Hi Fabrizio,

Welcome to TN, what a way to start, Fabulous depth of field with all-round sharpness, superb clarity and definition in the petals, lovely composition and well done, TFS.


Hello Fabrizio. Welcome to TN.
Great photo!! The composition is excellent and the colours are fantastic. In my WS I added sharpness and lighting. It is just an experiment.

Ciao Fabrizio. Benvenuto. Una bella compo d'apertura per te. Buona la profonditÓ. Bene il WS di Christodoulos che ha corretto qualche leggera sbavatura, per caritÓ nulla di irrimediabile. Anche Maurizio ti ha dato un consiglio prezioso al fine di evitare le ire dei cerberi che amministrano il sito.


  • Great
