looks like cinquefoil, Potentilla reptans, I can't say I've notice a smell to that

I tried gff but it never worked for me 

What is this?

one of the plantains, Plantago major I think, generally considered a weed but still an interesting looking plant.

Plant or Weed?

Yes, don't rip it out for being caper spurge because it isn't 

I wouldn't rip it out before it flowers. I know a lot of weeds and hat one isn't any of them. Might be something nice, an erigeron or something.

You're right Ladybird, the slightest hint of any wetness and you lose all grip as well.

I find by the time I've shampooed my hair and showered the rest of me there's not too much left. But maybe I'm just not too bothered what they look like , a good dollop of hand cream stops them getting too crispy-skinned but not just before the gardening

The other thing about Sweet Cicely is that it would be hard to take it for a shrub.

It has a soft hazy look to the leaves as well which this hasn't.

It's always harder to ID from photos. Things look different in real life. I never use on line mages to ID plants on the forum for this reason. I either know the plant or I don't. I can see the differences here because I know Sweet Cicely very well.


I had to brave the flying ants to get these photos
