I agree with Treehugger.

Also, from the look of things there's a pretty wild wilderness the other side of the fence.  I'd put down some sort of vertical root barrier along the base of the fence ... around 18" deep if possible, but at least 12" .... to help slow down the invading hordes.

It sounds as if Ruby and Rebecca should compare notes .... 

Sounds like a TIA ... Pa used to get them .... Transient Ischemic Attacks .... a sort of mini stroke which seemed to have no major lasting effects. 

((hugs)) to Joyce and everyone else going through difficult times.

Fer-diddling down here too .... the butts are full ... you can turn the taps off now, whoever it was who turned them on!!! 

Problem is, no gardening and no tennis either 

I will send OH to the shops for the small roasting chicken Pdoc didn't buy for me yesterday (didn't he see my shopping list?)  ... we'll have lemon and tarragon chicken with new potatoes and  braised chicory.   Maybe a bottle of rosé, just to stick two fingers up to the weather and pretend we're in the South of France

Alchemilla mollis known as Lady's Mantle. A useful ground cover/ in fill plant for semi shade. Useful in flower arranging. Leaves look gorgeous covered with raindrops after a shower.
