Nettles

Nature, Places, Poetry

That Stings!

I took a walk recently around a well known beauty spot in the northwest of England. A cautionary tale.

 

out in civilised city life

in that seemingly picturesque garden park

its a jungle out there

as you contend with those flying bugs and ants

coming off the river to disturb your lunch

bugspray keeps them away

but watch your legs … something worse lies around

keep a dock leaf handy….those nettles sting hard!
