    Euphorbia lathyris aka Caper spurge. Often seeds itself around. If pulling it out avoid getting the white sap on your skin as it causes photosensitivity

    I am in bed @fidgetbones ... listening to Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds playing live in the park over by the UEA. 😊

    I'm in bed trying to avoid scratching where something bit me. It's on my hand so reasonable access if i can't resist.
