Blackbirds in the mower shed

Posted: 28/07/2014 at 22:21

The blackbirds at the start of this thread have  flown, leaving cherry stones al over the floor and sh... all over the mowers with special attention to handles and steering wheel

Can anyone identify this for me please?

It looks like a chenopodium of some sort, but not Fat hen or any of the ones I know well. It might be Chenopodium album

The pics are a bit small but I think your vine is white briony, Bryonia dioica. Don't let it seed any more. It had roots like those mooli radishes, very long but not difficult to dig out.

Could we have another photo of the other one please, in situ maybe? so we can see how it grows

Salvias and Marigolds.

It's not green woodpecker behaviour.

It's Rhus typhina, very lovely but it can be a pain with suckering.

 

Are these wild raspberries?

Not but I killed one once

We saw a nice crop at East Ruston.

I'm not convinced, just thought it a possiblity. There are so many similar raspberry/brambly things

I squidge the blackfly. You can spray them with detergent, it doesn't take a lot.

If you can reach the plant with a hose a good squirt will dislodge them, I hold the head (plant not aphid) while I squirt then it doesn't move out of the way

Stumped by another small flower!

I think this is a gilia, it's not a scabious. The flower head here is made up of several individual 5 petalled flowers on separate stems, scabious has all that head on one stem.
