Mullein Criminal? No just aphids...........

Who is the real mullein criminal?  I was out on my bike and found common mullein growing along the outlet banks. Mullein is a wild herb that is good for respiratory ailments. I came back to harvest a little and thought that another forager had cut it all.  I did find the spot with the nice mullein plants but also a plant that was ravaged by insects, aphids, I believe.  The real theif was the insect, not a greedy forager.  It does kind of look as though the plant was ravaged by a person as well, though.


I only took a few leaves and one blossom to make a half pint tincture.  I plan to bring an offering to the chickadees that were complaining.....I often bring some seeds.
