Ominous stump

18°C, sunny on the whole.


Supper in the garden for the first time this year.
Maybe I am getting old, perhaps that’s why I find a growing interest in plants. It’s not the big colourful spreads that appeal to me, it’s the little tenacious ones, the ones that seed themselves, the ones that come from nature itself. Looking after them is like defending the underdog.
See this link: BBC Gardening. What I don’t understand is- why remove weeds? What’s bad about them?
While I’m at it, why do people poison ants’ nests? They are clean, don’t bite, cause no damage and appear to be entirely harmless- unless you are another ant maybe. So why do it?
Unless you have a clear reason- then don’t do it.

    Looking after the underdog plants seems more the territory of the young to me.
