Headlines, Thistles and Raindrops
Summer 2007 journal
I spent much of Wednesday soaked to the skin in a pair of fur lined boots weeding the ever multiplying thistles in the back border of my garden and there are so many more that need removing still. So spiteful, some of the larger ones stand almost as tall as me and their needles are a couple of inches long. I wear rubberised roofing gloves to tackle them and they still get through!
Harry's arrival of toys from eBay kept his imagination busy while Jake tackled the stinging nettles with the strimmer.
This weather has to get better....right?
Jake made headlines in the Fenland Citizen for his amazing score at clay shooting last Sunday.
