You have to keep the grey cells stimulated when you get to my age Tetley.

Yes get it out before it seeds Hefty.

If you look at that last photo, all the stems come out from the same base point. Japanese anemone doesn't do that,

I grow a lot of natives (aka weeds) and this is one I would happily do without

Anyone know what this is?

It's Ok with large plants but I should think it's a b........r in a rockery or with little alpines or anything like that

If you haven't planted any garden geums, that's Geum urbanum, wood avens, A weed with seeds that stick to clothes and animals and spread around like mad

Annual meadow grass is going to seed now. I think it's going to seed all the year round

It's hardy if you live in the right place. Like sea fronts in the south

It took me ages to ID T. padi when it first appeared on my Prunus padi. Early days of internet, not so much info on there. Also I'd decided it was a gall caused by an insect. After I'd sent the pic to someone I'd met from Buglife and he had no idea I started thinking again and eventually hit on the right  ID. No forum or Facebook then and a dial-up internet connection.  Makes one feel quite old

That's Taphrina for sure, I think the sweet cherry one is called T. weisneri, or something like that.

It's a fungus, causes a sort of gall. It's not a disease of the tree, just a useless fruit
