What is this flower? Another of the mysteries from my 'lucky dip' selection of seeds planted last year. There are several such blue flower heads developed each with a blue stem.
First flowers of 2014 appeared some weeks ago and now there's plenty to see in the garden.
Keeping feet in good shape is essential for a walking trip long or short.
Blisters and foot pain comes from friction. Reduction of friction must be a priority - and is something Compeed and the newer specialist blister plasters do not address.
Also a priority is to keep dressings in place - despite friction, perspiration, and wet.
Moleskin provides friction reduction. Leukotape is the medical version of Duct tape - super sticky. Friars' Balsam provides the Benzoin which help guarantee good adhesion to skin.
A few more grams for my pack!
