So there you go. I still must have brought it into the garden from some hedgerow somewhere.
I know this from the lovely Louise at Tidemill Garden, who had it at a restaurant for some ridiculous price.

And so to Tidemill Gardens. How lovely to be able to go and help plant seeds today with Ella. We planted Sweetcorn, Sunflowers and Tomatoes. As usual it was a lovely sunny day.
We had lunch too, with some Kale and broccoli from the garden and Andrea made Nettle tea, which I have never had before and which tasted and smelt of a summers day.
Walked through Brookmill Park to get there and Spring has come at last. What a difference a couple of weeks make at this time of the year.
