|Nettle. Nikon D200|
The woodpile for burning during the winter has grown quite large (it still includes a Christmas tree from 2013/14). My excuse is that the heap is too big to get past and so I have not picked the nettles that are growing behind it.
This nettle is maturing well, however in leaning forward to capture its picture, I discovered it is well guarded by its friends... the tungsten tipped javelins punctured my leg and came up in big white painful lumps. :(
