    • Yes, I like this spot, I have never met anyone walking here, I just disturb, herons, and mallard ducks, and occasional deer across the water. In another month or so the nettles in the path approaching the river will be so high that either one doesn’t walk there, or one keeps ones hands firmly in ones pockets. I have always liked this particular spot with the tree with the spreading out trunk reflected in the water, and the trees with their dappled trunks this side of the water.

      • Ah, not as bad as falling off a wall into a bed of nettles in summer clothes which I remember doing once or twice when I was young. Now I have good gloves and a jacket with deep pockets. But for the moment, the woods are full of wild garlic, with its heady smell.

      • I’vd had nettle soup. Was out with quite a strong-minded person who was a pro at hedgerow garnering, we walked miles, collecting nettles, and also small sprigs of trees, which she took back up to Edinburgh for someone who had made a whole wood out of these small sprigs. My young son was trailing behind looking increasingly miserable, and didn’t get much sympathy. When we got back we found he had a high temperature and an attack of German Measles, the poor wee smoot. I don’t think he appreciates nettle soup.
