Happy weekend hive lovers, have a nice weekend. This weekend I'm just at home and tidying the weeds in my garden and I found some flowers from wild plants in my garden These plants grow wild without us planting, without us caring for and without us wanting to be in our gardens, because these plants are just wild plants which are usually grass and bushes. But who would have thought, if we look carefully, it turns out that these plants also have beautiful flowers, no less beautiful than the flower plants that we plant and we hope that they bloom quickly. valuable to humans.
Some of these plants can even be used as natural medicine, it's just that we have not been able to utilize the useful substances contained in their bodies to the fullest.
I enjoy learning about natural medicine, so for photography lovers who have knowledge of natural medicine, please share information by commenting on this article, so that we can build knowledge together for the advancement of our civilization. I really appreciate it if photography lovers can share interesting info about the benefits of these wild plants.
some of the wild plants I found with colorful flowers that caught my attention were :

Putri malu (Mimosa pudica)
thorny plant with purplish pink flowers, when we touch the leaves will bud.
Urang aring (Eclipta prostrata)
the following plant that I found in the bushes is urang aring, this plant is very famous because it is useful for blackening hair and preventing gray hair, the part of the plant used for natural medicine is the green part of the leaf, if we grind the leaves, it will release liquid black, we can apply this black liquid on our scalp and hair before we wash it, after that we can clean our hair, the extraction of this leaf feels hot on our scalp, but after that we will get black hair (I've tried it several times while still in school)

This plant has flowers that are very similar to sunflowers, the small flowers are usually very dense so they are suitable as ornamental plants and placed on the table, some people call this plant a Kolget flower or mini sun.
cabe- cabean (Ludwigia octovalvis)
This plant is a weed / nuisance plant in the fields / fields, because of its dominating nature and flowering throughout the year without stopping, this plant is propagated through seeds which are easily spread with the help of animals such as birds, mice and caterpillars. This plant is very favored by caterpillars.

This mustard plant grows wild in bushes or along roads. I see the flowers when they are old are white and contain lots of seeds, so that when the wind blows, these seeds immediately spread and grow quickly all over the place.

This wild plant is called Israeli grass and grows a lot in bushes.
