Beware of Stinging Nettles


If you venture down this footpath, look out for nettles. I'm not one for walking out in shorts; bare legs don't often go with the British climate; so I'm usually not bothered.

I expect there is a clump of dock leaves growing somewheres about.

our garden is literally swamped with nettles in the winter - they all dispappear after srping, which is when we get swamped by purslane, a lovely watercress-like weed we add to our salads

We take stinging nettles, dehydrated in capsules, for allergies! Around here you must beware of Poison Oak.

'getting nettled' would be so easy!

I don't even know what stinging nettles look like. Sounds nasty though, if you can't wear shorts because of them. And I was going to say that that lane looks like a nice place to take a stroll.

Reminds me of my childhood - getting stung and then looking for dock leaves. I don't believe I've ever seen nettles in the south of France. Too dry, perhaps?

Where there are nettles you'll find dock leaves! Nice photo.

I am not allergic to poison ivy or poison oak but I am allergic to stinging nettles. I shall stay away.

we wear shorts all summer, good job we have no nettles here, too dry.

I'll have to drive a tank through this paticular patch of nettles!
