Monday 25th May 2015.

Dull and very quiet on this bank holiday Monday. At least it was dry for getting out and about and, unexpectedly, while o and a, a nice clump of (reddish?) greenery was noticed along the main-drag footpath.
In this and nearby areas there are several such outcrops (Japanese Knotweed). Himalayan Balsam gets everywhere – noticed it along the Daisyfield Greenway – but so far no Hogweed along there, well, last year there was one plant growing where the river Irwell passes-by several feet below. Plenty of J. Knotweed up there too.
Watched the latest episode of Home Fires last night. It’s only a soap but the myriad plots are building-up nicely for some real fire-works later. What did that wife put into her bullying husband’s tea? And already there’s been an untimely death – accidental but war-related all the same. Francesca and Samantha work well!
