F*cking Buttercups
« on: May 09, 2014, 05:28:27 PM »
Now that the Dandelions have finished spreading their noxious seeds the 'stalking weeds' are quietly flowering away and spreading their tendrils everywhere. Oo! don't they look nice or 'Do you like butter?' etc.etc. may be good fun but these pernicious evil little buggers need their own thread so spleen can be vented in the coming months. For me if nobody else!

I view buttercups as more benign than aggressive. Well in my garden anyway. Not so sure about the field adjoining, but the sheep seem to enjoy them.

I'd rather start a thread on Mare's Tail. Bl**dy pernicious stuff. And don't get me started on Pixie Trees. But then this page would take on a Gardener's Question Time look, and divert us from the business of the day.

To carry on the Gardener's Question Time theme mooted by Andy P.

I went to a village Scarecrow Festival last Bank Holiday Monday. What's all that about?

Loads more scary than horseradish,(comes in a jar desn't it?), horses tails (whatever they are), Mare's Tail (whatever that is), and is way off the radar compared to poxy little dandelions and buttercups.

But not scarier than that Japanese Knotweed stuff mentioned ealier....

I take your point Andrew - It's just that the buggers are getting to me and unless I diffuse my angst somehow I might do something stupid!!!!!
