burdock or cocklebur?
do you know your burs? does it really matter? they are all equally hard to get out of your wool socks and your dog’s fur. nevertheless, i still like knowing the names of things. and these here are cockleburs–hard spikey burs in the shape of a tiny football about the size of an almond. i spent our last month in autignac stepping on them, after our adopted stray cat batted them into random positions on the tile floor.
