      Lovely photo of purslane. I wish to use it in a book I'm writing about urban foraging (due out in 2013) and will credit you. Nice work!

      This photo of purslane really captures for me the succulence and attractiveness of this plant. Like the commenter above me, I love eating it, and I posted a haiku about its abundance and deliciousness recently at my two poetry blogs, Heart of Life Poetry and Praise to Incarnation. I chose this photo to accompany the poem. If you are interested in seeing it in those two settings, here are the links: [] and []
