Icy Creek today

I used to associate “weed” with “relaxation”, but these days the more mundane reality is that I’m overwhelmed by the unwanted extra features that nature throws in every year. The worst are the thistles and the blackberries (no, not the electronic organiser), but this year even agreeable herbs have gone on the trot around the garden, as well as wanton grasses and the dreaded radish weed. Still, it’s hard to complain when you get days like this. Moose and Elka (the two chocolate labs in the pic) seem to go along with that.
