Living in the country may have certain disadvantages, lack of facilities, poor public transport and so on. It also has it’s perks…
I took a little stroll out of the village
Spotted a new crop of conkers
Noted the flooding still evident from the downpours
Produced a bag and began to collect, slowly, painfully. Nettles, prickles and thorns are thriving in this damp weather and all seem to be on or in close proximity to the gooseberries.
Wild flowers in abundance
and this made tired feet and nettled, prickled fingers worth while.
