Nettle soup – so good for you

The wonderful weather continued in the first week of June so EVERYONE headed for the bog, some of them sustained by traditional Irish Nettle Soup (good for what ails you and uses up some of the nettles which shoot up overnight).

On Bank Holiday Monday, thunder rattled around for hours while storm clouds piled up, but very little rain fell so by Tuesday we were all back to enjoying the sun.
