Bindies. Those sound like the Goatheads of New Mexico. Yes, itty bitty caltrops, a perfect description.

Ah the joys of summer! Now I can go barefoot most of the time, although
bindies mean I need shoes when I'm walking on the grass. But it's so nice
not to need shoes, and just slip on sandals when necessary. Free the feet! (And yes,
summer. Here on the correct continent it's heading into full hot summer, ready for
a blazing Christmas.)

markus:
and no fear that a creepy-crawly might lurk in the gras, getting ready to much
on your toes?

Gwynne: The worst thing in the grass is bindies, which are the vegetation
equivalent of caltrops, only a lot smaller and amazingly painful. The creepy-
crawlies tend to be under rocks and in dark corners. Shake your shoes out
before you put them on. And check your gardening gloves, too.
