I shall be doing it.

I started at the crack of dawn last year. I looked out of the bedroom window and saw a pair of buzzards in one of the poplars.

I can see everything

I've got a plastic distance lens in one eye and my own shortsighted lens in the other.

Joe, the golden rod will not be dead, believe me. There are people who've been trying to kill it for years

Introduction and weed identification

The prickly things are briars, wild/dog roses.

The one you've done a close-up of may be golden rod, pretty but pretty invasive as well.

The one with the spear leaves and red berries is Iris foetidissima, a native iris

I can see a bit of bramble in with the rose, some green alkanet, (Pentaglottis sempervirens) and what could be dock and a hollyhock seed head.

and welcome to the forum Joe

Identification please

We're having a huge garden/tree surgery blitz Dove. No time for housework.

Not that it's ever very high on the list
