My new 'back yard' is full of lovely pink acacias and abundant periwinkle, but there are also some growths that may or may not be weeds, so today I will decide whether or not to pull them out.
On a more whimsical note, Anna Betty (her full American name) and I found ourselves in possession of three packets of American Wild Flower seeds - enough to cover 60 sq m of ground.
Now in my experience of wild flower seeds, you sow them as directed over the prescribed area of land and end up with one sad looking cornflower and a couple of ragged robins, so this time we have taken a more concentrated approach. We dumped the whole lot in one flower pot that we found under a rose bush. If we only get three flowers that will be fine, but if we are more successful, then we have created a battle of the blooms US style to see which flower is the fittest to survive in the ultimate competition for space.
