Hello there, if you ARE there.
As you may or may not know I am the supreme Champion of Gardening Club International, but even we experts are, now and then, seeking help and advice.
OK ... can ANYBODY tell me what these are?
Yes, I know they're some sort of FLOWER. Why wouldn't I, the Champion, know this ... err, well, maybe, perhaps, or possibly I might be embellishing the truth to say that I'm the Champion. In fact it would be more truthful to say I'm NOT really the Champion, of anything.
So, ignore the dahlias and concentrate on the clump of greenery with quite a few little white and pinkish flowers. Any ideas?
When I first saw the green leaves popping up all over the place I thought it was the dreaded GROUND ELDER. But though I pulled a good few of these 'weeds' out I left some to develop as I am NOT a champion gardener at all. And it seems I was right to leave some in. Other greenery turns out to be what I call the Chinese Lantern flowers, which I quite like, so they can stay. But the much taller greenery and its small blooms are a mystery to me.
I quite like them. They will remain in place. What might they be, that's the question. Aye, there's the rub, I've no blooming idea!
