    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
    On and on the rain will fall, like tears from the star
    On and on the rain will say, how fragile we are

    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 😊

    The creeping buttercup is weeded out where it’s not wanted ... but on a grassy bank by a wildlife pond ... you’d have to have a harder heart than mine not to smile at it 😊
