OK - so maybe life's not THAT hard all the time :lol::lol::lol:

There is some foraging that is pretty enjoyable!!!!

The lavender collecting is not bad either - though I hate to cut the heads off!!! - at least marigolds will grow more flower heads!!

*Wonder if Dad would notice if I decapitated a few marigolds???* :?

you have to get the right ones - These are the traditional English Marigold - Calendula officianalis - not the small fancy ones people grow in small border (the African Marigold - Tagetes)
:D

Not a bad job at all :)

I've been out 3 times today dog walking and foraging at the same time, with all the rain theres loads of stuff growing so I'm making the most of the weather being a bit kinder today , its been very enjoyable:thumb:

I wouldn't have given Spenser the border ones, as they have slug pellets round them. We do have calndula but don't think they have flowered yet.

We have lavender ...
