The wild violets round here in the banks and hedgerows have been superb this year.

Thanks to Dove, Bob and Gina - the decision has been made to keep it.  I have put it in a large pot to control it and I am also famous for cutting things back (plants quiver with fright when I appear with the secateurs).

If all else fails and it tries to control me then I can burn it as arneil's MIL insisted.

I have been a silly billy and bought a potato vine (solanum glasnevin) thinking it was a clematis.  Am I correct in thinking it is a bit of a thug?  Should I cmpost it, give it away with a warning or grow it.  Has anyone on the forum any experience with it?

You will have to dig it out which is hard work.  They self seed everywhere as you are now discovering.  They look really nice when they are young - one to two years old, but after that they become a nuisance.  Get rid of it.

Your garden is so advanced Marion - you must have a cosy micro climate there.   

The monster picture is great as every detail can be seen.  Hope you sleep well.

Hello Wonky Legs - Sounds like you have been really busy already in your new garden.  Digging your pond might reveal buried treasure - you never know.

Very good here although I didn't look at it directly, but just felt the stillness as it got gloomier - the birds kept singing throughout, unlike when we had the full eclipse when they did go silent.

I find it difficult puncdoc to photograph birds as they fly off just when you think you have got them in frame, so well done for capturing those shots.
