Who would have though gardening was so painful? I spent the day on a team build up at Stanmer Park pulling weeds and I am sore today – even my knuckles hurt. It probably wasn’t helped by having a hike with the Brownies in the evening in the woods there though. I had a great time and pulling up thistles gives real progress so it was good to see the transformation at the end of the day so it was worth it. I also have a bag of Ragwort to try dying with and a lovely big bunch of lavender to dry.
