a few pence

... two small coppers conveniently showing both sides of their wings while refuelling on some fleabane. Fleabane was highly prized for driving away the fleas that lived on grass and rush floors, which is why Harriet and I have been carrying mouthfuls of it home with us. The Romans used it to make wreaths, hmmm. Posted by Picasa
