My nearest neighbour is a 3 storey sycamore whose purpose on the earth is to shower my lawn, pots and beds with its helicopter seeds.
This morning I stepped out into the warmth of the sunshine while genteely scoffing a richly buttered hot cross bun. Everywhere there were sycamore seedlings are germinating!
Each hand being full of bun halves, I padded about weeding by foot. Quite therapeutic really. Someone should make a video game of it. I mulchly deeply last autumn and so the seedlings slipped right out. Which was handy!
Worryingly though, there are several sprouting seeds in the horse manure I got from the WillowTree Riding Stables in Lee. Now I have to worry about what else the horses were eating prior to their generous deposits.
