Day 104 - April 14th

The weather was hot and sunny when we took Millie for her walk today. In the fields crops are starting to grow.

Millie was more interested in the sticky weed also known as Clivers or Goosegrass growing alongside the hedgerow.

I've posted before about Millie's love of this weed which she stops and enthusiastically grazes on whenever she gets the chance at this time of year. She will only eat it though when the leaves are young and presumably most tasty to her.

Having done some research this weed is perfectly OK for dogs to eat. It is thought to be good at cleansing the blood and good for the liver. It is also a foragers vegetable and safe for humans to eat too.
