I was busy weeding one of the borders yesterday when Mr S asked me why I was digging out the seedlings he had lovingly watered the day before.
He now knows what ground elder looks like!
He has agreed to stick to being the lawn ranger, leaving the borders to me.

    I think I'm with Mr S - I don't really know what's what! I carefully labelled every potted plant, as there are no plants in the ground in the back, but I'm not 100% sure what the plants at the front are. Have to use an app to look it up when I need to know!

    Some weeds are quite pretty - but ground elder is not one of them !

    It took me years to root it all out of our front garden.

    ...... and he strikes again!  This time with a clump of creeping buttercup that I was leaving to dry out before launching my attack.

    'But they were such pretty little flowers' he said.
