A Prickly Sunday smile

Goose grass, cleavers, or Galium Aparine can be found all over Europe. My childhood favourite name for it was sticky buds. Hands up who’s crept up behind some unsuspecting soul and thrown it onto their back, or worse, realised someone’s done it to you and you’ve been walking around with it for hours.

Last weekend I was playing with my biggest grand daughter on Tree Island when she decided to crown meΒ  with a mound of cleavers and a feather.

This may seem like a stretch for a spiny, pointy, spiky square, but up close they have millions of tiny prickles!

Becky has mega thorns today, not the kind to brush against, a bit like me when I’m tired πŸ™‚

  1. Tiny prickles works for me. My sweetheart kept pocket-dialing me last night from a different time zone when I was really sleepy and then not answering when I called him back. That made me super prickly after a few goes!

  2. Oh I love this so much! Might be my favourite spiky square to date, such fun!! And yup hands up cannot resist playing with this, I’ve caught out more than one person in my life πŸ˜ƒ

I would love to hear from you . . .
