Big Mouth

P1030282 (2)A few months ago I wrote an article extolling the virtues of the aster.  Today I spent the morning de-astering a border that had been infested with my favourite late season flower.  Me and my big mouth.  There was no way around it, each and every stiffled plant had to be dug up and the invasive monster untangled and teased out from roots and crowns.  The disinfected were then replanted.  There is plenty more to do and this project will keep me out of mischief for several visits.  Lunch was pumpkin soup and home-made bread supplied by my last speed date of the week, the lovely Lavinia and Lionel.   Still smiling!

Of course the photo is not of an aster or a strangled plant, it is the helicopter seed of Lavinia’s favourite Japanese Maple.
