Showery today but did get some work done and also took some photos. The one here is of Iris Silver edge which I love. Thank you Mary for giving me this beauty.

Very important ID please....driving me mad!

For ages I have been trying to identify this grass type weed that grows up throught most of the plants in my garden. It gets quite tall but the feature that marks it is that at the base/root there is a bunch of little grape like structures sometime a couple but mostly a big bunch of them. Very hard to prise out of the ground. It does not seem to conform to the usual culprits like scutch.  I have tried to get the ID a number of times but nobody ever comes up with the answer so it is over to you to solve this mystery please!! The photo is not great I thought I was clever taking it on a coloured background.....not!

It is about 6 days since I posted a photo showing the Roscoea Kew Beauty appearing above ground and here it is in all it's flower glory, talk about a fast mover.

The speaking of moving Dublin Bay is rushing up this Ash tree and looking very good as the flowers appear to be coming from the Ivy!

Finally one of my favourite shrubs Vallea stipularis.  The flowers are so lovely in clusters at the end of the branches. My one has rather bare branches and can look a bit straggly. I was thinking of pruning it but having had a Google it seems the habit of the shrub to have these bare branches.....anyone grow it and if so what is your one like.
