Save Me!

My little Two-Faced violetta were drowning in weeds, crying, “Save me!

Thank you!

One problem with the heavy seasonal rainfall, is that unwanted plants grow far faster than wanted plants.Β And it is back-breaking work weeding them all out!

The furry white leaves are from my Dusty Miller, Jacobaea maritima. I wasn’t going to mention it, assuming of course everyone knows the plant, but maybe you don’t? That is what’s fun about WP around the world; it could be as common to you as dandelions, or you could all be going, “Say what?”

And I’ll never know till I read the comments!

 

post script: If, like me, you now have that song by Clout stuck in your head, you can listen to it here: Save Me!Β Did you know Clout was a SA all girl group from the 70’s?

      I never knew them in the UK – but like you, I am no expert either! πŸ™‚
      And, yes, the weeds are already appearing again at the other end of the flower bed, before I finish weeding! Agh!

      Yes, these are smaller than a pansy, so I know them as violetta. Sometimes they grow wild in the lawn, but they are the usual purple ones. πŸ™‚

    Yay for me! I already knew what dusty miller was. This is a very rare event for me because flower names, fish names and color names are all things I tend to be terrible with. I know roses, daffodils, buttercups and daisies. After that, I begin to struggle.
