Wednesday 7 September

Rain again but managed to get some photos between showers.

Balsam Galore - I don't think there is an area that has escaped - we need to get this under control before it seeds next year too late this year.
Himalayan Balsam - Impatiens glandulifera as you can see already bursting with seed, each pod holds an average of 8 seeds so we are looking at over 30/40 plants just from this little bunch.
Common Fleabane - Pulicaria dysenterica
Corn Mint - Mentha arvensis
First dead mole this year.
Lots of rabbits about and Meg is bewildered
Canadian Goldenrod - Solidago canadensis - this is now a large patch, when I first saw this it was about 2 feet square.

Take Care.
