Good news Frank 


Overcast here in Norfolk and the  temp here has dropped from 32 earlier to just above 29 in the shade just now with a breeze - a little more comfortable

OMG.....Leeches!

When we were children there was a 'horsepond' on the neighbouring farm - we would sit on the edge and dangle our legs in trying to catch leeches - sometimes we found leeches on our legs when we got out, but disappointingly they never 'sucked our blood' enough for us to notice and we never came to any harm.

Plant or Weed?

Nope not Cerinthe - something aster- like. 

What is this tree?

The yellow colour is what the "Aurea" part of the name refers to. If it's in a sunny spot the yellow colour will be enhanced.

Yes I'd just keep mowing it every few days. That'll kill it off in the lawn. Use your glyphosate to treat the bindweed in the borders - if you've got it in the lawn it's probably elsewhere too. 


Good luck and welcome to the forum
