Spiky weeds??

If you're going to pull them up use gloves and long sleeves.  Don't get the sap on your skin.

It's not that it drowns out the noise of conversation - the theory is that your ear focuses on the sound of the water and not the chattering.

A bonus is that the neighbours may spend more time going back and forth to the loo and less time sitting conversing ... although that may affect you too

BL the first horse I ever rode was my uncle's point to pointer called Panada (a cooking connection there) - I was about six years old and was put up and walked around the schooling area - I was in heaven.  After that when I visited there was a pony for me to ride  - sometimes my uncle's friend and neighbour the late great showjumper Alan Oliver gave me a lesson. 

For a couple of years in my early teens I'd go and stay with my friend at her sister's place.  Her husband was the local MFH and in exchange for long hours mucking out and cleaning tack I got to ride out on one of his steadier horses. 

Lovely big horses with muscle, power and character

The greater distance between the water spout and the basin the noisier the noise

It would be amazing if we saw them in our garden
