Anything that flowers, is a flower. They're only weeds when they grow where you don't want them (or so I'm told).
Rather than weeds, I like to refer to them as wild flowers.
It looks beautiful. I planted Valerian with the hope it would get out of hand and self seed. It took a few years, but it is doing it now.
That last shot looks like it came straight out of a fairy tale.
much like your brain!:0)
Amy..that wasn't very nice
The last shot is incredibly pretty!Jane x
sometimes comatose is not a bad thing...like the photos...wish I could smell that honeysuckle :)
So pretty! Valerian can be a useful herb, John. I've got yarrow self-seeding all over the place. Delightful aroma when i mow the grass.
The cottage garden is still looking glorious!
The fragrance of honeysuckle is so very pleasant. I’m thinking I like comatose it just slows the world down a bit.
Can you nibble the Valerian as mosey on by?
I live on valerian - its the only thing that makes me sleep! I had no idea it looked like that or grew so freely here. Guess I never googled it!Your are a mind of useful information!
Lovely! I wish I could visit your cottage. Nancy in faraway Iowa
got loads of Valerian in my garden too. It's a bit prolific when it gets going
Oh John - a weed is only a plant in the wrong place. Extract of Valerian is a great herb for helping people sleep and it can also be a replacement for catnip - you might like to try it out on Albert - as catnip of course as most cats don't need any help sleeping :-)
My mistake x
What you call sleepy many might think of as charming. Until they come across someone driving by in a grimy dog-snotted Berlingo with a forgotten Scotch egg container on top. Then it becomes quirky.
I love Alison's comment Wonderful post, my tourist senses are tingeing. I would love to visit your village. The last photo is enchanting. All it needs is a Scotty to be perfect.cheers, parsnip
