Two things I can't ID have popped up, hoping you can help. Thanks.
but the colour is completely wrong so I do think it's a bramble. I have no idea what the first one is, sorry.
I think the second one is a bramble shoot coming through.
Failing that, it might be one of these:
Oh dear, sorry. The last two lines were supposed to come before the picture. oops
Hello daisy. Yes, the second one is definitely a bramble seedling, dropped by a bird. The first may be an acorn that has lost its jacket.
Hi there, pansyface Just for information, I went out to the garden after my last post to pull up more of those weeds pictured above. About halfway through a light bulb went off in my head and it occurred to me that these were hollyhock seedlings from my Chater's Double I grew last year. I left the seed heads on in the hope it would self-seed. I've come back in and checked on the internet, and it seems I'm right. So now I have to let them grow a bit more and then try and pot them all up!
At least I've made a bit of space for the euryops.
You may be right about the acorn,
Durrr How silly of me, sounds like an excuse but I knew I had something on my mind , rushed out and took the wrong photo (true honestly!)
Acorn shell found close by
The other one duly removed, it was this I meant
hmmm, thanks again.
Daisyheadcase - not sure about those 'weeds' being hollyhocks - they look very like those hardy geraniums with shiny leaves Nut identified yesterday ............
but I might be wrong
The leaves aren't shiny Dove. I don't think they're geraniums.....I get most of my weeds from my neighbour's garden and it was puzzling because he doesn't have any of this at all. But I'm probably wrong - I'll just wait a while longer like most of us do and see what it is.
Not sure what Mrsgarden's mystery plant is though....
No, not geraniums. Not hollyhocks either.
I thought Mrs G's might be a verbena but when enlarged it looks too hairy
I did have some verbena seeds Nut, but didn't think they had made it.
Maybe one did
MrsGarden you do make me smile At least I know it's not just me that does it
