According to OH breathing in air containing oxygen causes oxydation which causes cancer ... or something along those lines involving free radicals..... stop breathing folks! 

If you carry on breathing don't say you haven't been warned

Doesn't look at all like Hydrangea petiolaris to me ... leaves and habit all wrong and hydrangea pet. doesn't have tendrils as in the photo.

Virginia creeper has small inconspicuous flowers followed by small berries, looking just as the ones in Rob's photo 

see photo here 

ID please!

Glad it's helping 

The boot should be off after I visit hospital on 10 July ... but it does come off in the evening for a bathe and a gentle massage ... OH went into the city and came back with some Bodyshop Peppermint Foot Lotion ... he's a star

The SBK should do the job ... the roots can only keep going so long if the suckers aren't allowed to develop ....... have you neighbours who might be within the root area ... if so I'd warn them to keep an eye open for the suckers in flower beds etc so they can pull them up and convince the root system that you all mean business

BL  ((hugs))  we're at that age ........... I'm waiting for the news that another dear friend's life is over ... he was diagnosed with liver cancer a little while ago. 

Anyone know what this is?

I don't think I'll try eating it ... I'd be bound to prepare it wrong or eat

the wrong bit or something 

Anyone know what this is?

Phytolacca americana aka Pokeweed.

The berries are reputedly toxic, but  I believe the leaves are a traditional food plant of indigenous Americans.
