Thanks Kerry. Apart from weeds, lol, this is one of only a few native plants I have in the garden. @kez001uk

They're quite tall & have an elegant structure. The other one & maybe my favourite local wild plant is the evening primrose. I have a few of them, including one over 5 ft tall & loads of flowers @kez001uk

@jeatacake it does look elegant, you’re right 💜 wow, that’s a big plant! I’ll have to look them up. Can create my own wrinkle cream if I grow some 😉😉😉

Ha ha. I'm sure you're way too young for that! I heard they were used for something like that. Very easy to grow & very fragrant & they produce millions of seeds too! @kez001uk

@jeatacake 😂 I feel it at the moment. The heat is ageing me! I found I’ve got some seedlings growing already 😯 that was a nice surprise 😂
