Tingling Fingers – sounds like a real ale brewed at a Warwickshire micro-brewery. Sadly, the nearest any of us lot got to alcohol was the anti-bac hand-wash in the first-aid kit.
The coffee came a close second-place though, for Marcus, Phil, Aaron and me. The biscuits were a treat worth waiting for, too.
Yes, this week was a “pulling up nettles” day. No matter how we do it, the little blighters always seem to find a way through our gloves and sting our fingers repeatedly. It is a strange sensation to then spend the rest of the day with tingling fingers.
It is great exercise, nonetheless.
And gives everything else in our mini-wildflower meadow a chance to grow.
Our new observation bench overlooks the wildflowers and bird-feeders. It is pretty damn good to sit and watch from a slight distance, even if I say so myself. We had birds all over the feeders straight away after replenishing, and an orange-tip butterfly made an appearance.
Please record anything spotted on iRecord (link above) and please let me know how easy, or not, it is to use. I get on OK with it but I am not sure if this is the same for everyone.
We seemed to struggle to find anything other than green today, which makes me wonder if our scrub to grassland ratio is a bit skewed, but we managed to capture a couple of flowers.
Well, that’s about it for this week.
Next week it will be, err… same again, please, barmaid, at bench #2.
