Scented Mayweed (Matricaria chamomilla) is also known as Chamomile. It is an annual or biennial scented plant with daisy like flowers that is locally found on sandy or loamy arable soils and on waste ground. It is not harmful but is not worth picking because it is a small plant and not particularly palatable.

Image ECMAScript program Hawthorn (with Berries)
Hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata) flowers in the spring with a strongly scented white or pale pink flower. The berries (haws) are bright red but rabbits do not eat them. Birds do, so the berries are better left on the bush for winter. No part of the plant is poisonous and can be picked at any time of the year althouth it is hampered by their thorny stems. New spring growth is not thorny and is among everyday plants to forage in the early spring when forage is scarce. Later in the year there are easier plants to pick.
