It won't let me zoom, but from here those could almost be buttercup leaves ...

I'd please

Don't think so Norfolkdumpling   I know what you mean (I've hoed sugar beet fields too ) the leaves are a similar colour but Fathen (chenopodium album has a different shaped leaf.

It does look a lot like mugwort to me.

Garden Pictures 2015

Thanks BL   DD's garden looks gorgeous - lovely lilies, and as Chicky says, that rose/clematis combination is to die for

I hope she had a lovely day and is able to put her feet up for a little while today and feel very pleased with herself

They're not long-lived flowers, but glorious for a few days. 

Check that they're not thirsty

Good morning all   Hello Verdun

A lovely warm morning here too, with bright sunshine  - Hemerocallis and echilnacea in the front border are budding up nicely, Roscoea purpurea is flowering and Clematis viticella Purpurea Plena Elegans and Venosa Violacea are full of buds and just beginning to open  

The perfume from the honeysuckles as we walked around the garden in the moonlight last night was wonderful.

Verdun, you may be interested to know that a couple of years ago I planted a David Austin rose Mayflower - it is supposed to have a strong fragrance but last year I was a tad disappointed - this year the fragrance is very noticeable as you walk past - it seems to have improved as the plant has matured - hopefully the same will happen with the one you've planted for your mum.

Plant (Rose) i.d.

Don't know Blush Beauty, but the flowers of Rosa 'Blush Rambler' are similar but I think its buds are much deeper pink and the growth is much more vigorous than the one in MaJiKs Garden's picture

Do try not to let it get under your skin.  They may not be the neighbours you'd choose, but a peaceful life is worth a great deal
