    That sounds idyllic Buttercup. I saw one of your pics the other day and it looks glorious.

    My garden lives under next door neighbour's adorable (!) sycamore tree, so I have a constant battle all spring getting rid of its baby blighters ....... T'other side cultivates dandelions so I battle them too - everything else gets left . After all a weed is only a plant in the wrong place ......beautiful garden B 3 imageimage jealous x

    Lovely that B3 - Aquilegias really put on a show at this time of year.

    We have a huge sycamore in our garden - It was probably there before the estate was built looking at the size of it so we can't be blamed for it showering the surrounding gardensimage

    It does lend a lot of privacy in the summer though from the houses backing onto ours so it's not all bad and is a valuable resource for birds, bugs and leaf mulch! Between that and ground elder there's always plenty of selective weeding to be done from spring onwards though image The last week or two has mainly been it dropping it's flowers everywhere but they kind of blend in with the grass if I squint and don't pay too much attention.image

    Yes they do look good this time of year, Bob. The centaureas look good too (no picture). Valerian will be out soon.
