    (sigh), we were having a big clearout down the side of my drive. So this meant an end to my beloved weeds I had been growing them for a few months. I'm not sure if they is a proper name for these weeds but heres a picture of them just after they had been pulled out.

    I got so attached that I actually started watering them and watching them grow everyday! :angry: so maybe its best they have been pulled out!

    they are pretty big weeds! Even though I am the queen of growing weeds (and the queen of killing normal flowers) I dont think I could beat the size of those!

    Seriously, why do weeds continue to grow if you dont look after them, yet flowers that I spend half my life watering, covering in slug pellets and feeding miracle grow wither and die within weeks?! :angry:

    I personally blame it on the giant killer slugs that come to life while I am asleep!

    No, although I am rather shocked when I discover just how greedy slugs can be over night.... I mean - they eat more than I do in one sitting!
