    I'll second that. It does look gorgeous. So called weeds have a part to play in our gardens and they don't need any tender care.

     :D lovely

    We've hit 'peak cow parsley' here  :o
    It's hard to love, there's so much to hate

    Love your weeds Dove.
    If you count self-seeders as weeds, I'd say my garden is a good 60% weeds.
    Here's just a sample!
    The under the step collection - one of many




    I used to know the name of this but I've forgotten - it might be feverfew


    The biggest weed of the lot - elderberry - planted itself just where I wanted a small tree. I give it a regular haircut.



    Valerian

    teasel



    pink valerian. the lovely red one is out the front. I'm hoping it will spread



    toadflax and euphorbia

    I also have a lovely pot of scarlet pimpernel, but there's nothing to see at the moment but leaves

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Can't beat a lawn full of buttercups and daisies this time of year!

    Loving your weeds. Here’s my Alkanet patch at the end of the garden which the bees are crazy for

    It’s great ... if you’ve got the space for it ... isn’t it 😊

    Think I may be alone in this but I have no fondness for weeds. Dove, our two lawns are full of creeping buttercups and daisies, you can have the lot if you want. You'll  have to come and dig them out though....😁
