It's a bit blurry ......... if I zoom right in I think I can see seedpods that look to me like  tiny violas but that may be because I've zoomed in so close - do they look like this?

 and then open up a bit like this?


Strange problem....

Hi Specklehen

It sounds like Oxalis corniculata - a right PITA - info here

Hope that helps

Strange problem....

Diblinschtat - made me laugh too - that too is something that happened occasionally in the old farmhouse where we lived - Pa taught us never to put our wellies on without tipping them upside down first. 

That's why one of these is such a useful item if you live in the countryside.

I think that's fox poo.  Foxes do vary in size - occasionally a big dog fox can be quite substantial.

Can anyone ID please

Ok, I was wrong - not a viola

Can you give us a photo of an individual flower a bit closer up please?

Can you see stamens?

I thought people might be interested in this local online newspaper article - the video is great too!

Lesley, the plumber was just finishing off when I spoke to her yesterday evening and she said he'd done a brilliant job, hiding as much pipework as possible and fitting new worktops etc, and the electrician had appeared and done some more work (although still more to do).
