This unusual plant was growing by the towpath, it is about five feet tall with small round white clustered flowers, then spiky seed-heads, stems and leaves. It resembles a Teasel but is not in our wildflower identification book. So, has anyone any idea what it might be called please?

Here are some poppies and a Geranium to complete a red, white and blue theme! We were first in the queue to come up Watford Locks, then on through the dripping wet Crick Tunnel before lunchtime. Luckily we found a mooring spot as there were plenty of boats on the move both ways. Since our last visit here a little hairdressers has opened called Zoe’s. I was pleased that they could fit me in when I called on Saturday morning, with a stylish haircut for a reasonable price. The Wheatsheaf Inn has been re-furbished and re-opened providing a full menu. Roast Sunday lunch at the friendly family run Red Lion was as lovely as usual. The 96 bus runs from the Post Office to Northampton, or Rugby every hour which is very handy for for a trolley dash.

We are following nb Balmaha’s lead now and not taking photos of places we have visited and posted on our blog previously. Also I apologise for not adding comments on other peoples blogs, but I sometimes cannot distinguish the ‘wobbly’ letters that we have to copy in order to do so. We appreciate all the comments we receive on our blog, thank you everyone!
