I think I need a snapping turtle to get the weeds down a bittie. It is 'ENCROACHING' in a knotweed like manner.  Can one get voracious vegetarian frogs ?



Aren't hippos herbiverous?

Weed identification please

Hmmm, I thought Eupatorium flowers are flatter rather than in spires

Hope you had a lovely holiday.  Out grass needs cutting too - that's because it's a nature reserve and full of baby frogs and toads  Well, that's our excuse and it's not going to get mowed today or tomorrow .......

Wrist definitely mending and I'm feeling much better since an indulgent day yesterday and a present today - definitely looking forward to tomorrow

I'm sure we'll be able to find you a crust ..........






Weed identification please

The first one has leaves like Enchanter's Nightshade but the flower looks wrong


The second one looks a bit like one of the spireas, but I'm not sure


The third one is Aquilegia foliage - you should get some lovely flowers next year


Someone else will have more ideas ......

Oh, a friend in NE London has just said that they're having an absolute cloudburst - she says it's so loud they can't have a conversation!!!

That'll fill the waterbutts!
