I find it seeds itself around but no trouble.
I agree with Julie
I can't see the flower clearly but try Tragopogon porrifolius, salsify
Let them ripen totally (go brown) in the plant then you can pick them off and remove them from the pods. Let them dry completely. Store cool in paper bags/envelopes. Never polythene, they sweat and go rotten.
Bats rarely bump into anything do they. Echolocation must be better than eyes.
I think they're checking you out when they come close, I love it when they brush by me.
I'll see if I can catch some for you fidget
Can't imagine being frightened of them Welshonion, they're so small
In the bedroom anyway
We have bats in numbers we haven't seen for years
I think they've all gone from the bedroom now
They look as though they've formed seed pods in spite of whatebver you sprayed them with. Aphids can be brushed of hosed off with far less damage to plant and biodiversity
Don't forget to let us see 6. we need to know.
New one on me as well Berghill but have to admit I haven't marked them to check
