We saw these fabulous thistles at the Metro link station this afternoon. They are the perfect greens and purples and remind me of childhood when we ran through the woods and fields avoiding spiky thistles and stinging nettles.
This in turn got me thinking that I never have seen nettles while we have lived in the United States.
As we will be spending six weeks in the UK this summer, I will need to introduce (nicely) my boys to stinging nettles. Just in case they come across a patch which will undoubtably taller than they are.
Back to true Metro Link, we were trekking up to the library in Clayton as they often have different books to our local library as well as an abundance of magazines.
The library is the best thing ever in my opinion. Pretty much any book, CD or film I have wanted to read, listen to or watch I have managed to borrow from a library. For free! I like to listen to audio books while I am making jewels and these come from the library too and I pop them into iTunes for future listening.
On the way to the library I bought the new ‘Jamie’ cooking magazine which always makes me a happy girl.
So, a happy Easter Saturday was had, looking forward to an Easter breakfast of sticky buns which are starting their nutty caramelly life right now as a dough in my breadmaking machine.
