Some of the most unnecessary advice ever written in the English language (unless you read the Daily Express) was in The Guardian, in a gardening article about Euphorbias: ‘Don’t get the sap on your willy.’
The writer had this nether-regional advice on good authority from two women, whose husbands attested to the fiery properties of the milky ooze from the cut plant.
Details were not forthcoming, and I think we may all be glad of that.
As I often do, I took this photo by lying on the damp woodland floor, pointing my lens skywards to catch the dusk light glimmering poetically through the canopy of ash trees above.
I really don’t mind getting wet and muddy, for views like this.
Photographed at dusk in Oversley Woods, Warwickshire.
