My Rowan is performing it annual trick of attracting lots of bees :) . The downside is the aroma it puts out. :shake:

Insects just love the rowan - the hawthorn perfume is drowning everything else out. Seems particularly strong this year :)

Couple of hawkweeds in flower and lotsa buds :yes:. I could wish for a happier name - it's not a 'weed'. :(
In fact, come to think of it, nothing's a weed, it just needs moving.

Just checked this in my old granddad's massive dictionary (circa Caxton) - WEED: any plant which is troublesome or useless. Bless .......
Anglo-Saxon - weod. So they've been around for a while then.
