Purple one a plant. Bottom green one looks like jack by the hedge aka garlic mustard. weed or wildflower depending on your perspective. Orange tip butterflies like them.
Purple one looks like, the dark leaved Lysimachia.
As fidget says, second one is wild garlic, grows rampantly throughout garden, orchard, woodland, and paths, in my garden.
Thanks to you both. Now I can get rid of the weed. Wasn't sure whether it was a Hollyhock or not.
Brenda is spot on! You're supposed to be doing one thing but end up just wandering about doing lots of what grabs your attention and end up down the other end of the garden. Bimbling.
Indeed.... except that the Royal Marines refer to what the Parachute regiment call 'yomping' - i.e. trekking vast distances over difficult terrain with enormous packs - as bimbling. Typical RM understatement.
I'm not going to argue with either of them! I might have to trek down the garden with a couple of trays of plants trying to avoid any obstacles the wife has left out for me so definitely not yomping either!
Yep - I have the first one - it is Lysimachia ciliata
Forgive me punkdoc - but isn't wild garlic 'Ramsons' - I agree this is Alliaria.
I have heard
all referred to as wild garlic.
This is why I use the above names. I like to know which plant I'm discussing.
re weeds. I'd rather have Alliaria petiolata than Lysimachia ciliata
I have all three nutcutlet
