....to some pictures and a little text in which we follow the activities of a barely competent gardener as he struggles to wrench back control of his patch from the forces of Mother Nature's feral twin sister.

If I was a proper gardener I'd know what this is. But I'm not and I don't. It has chocolate brown cordate leaves and the flowers are a bit like dandylions, a real orangey yellow. It was expensive when I bought it and it has the look of something tropical. It sits among the euphorbias and the michelmas daisies looking like it doesn't quite belong with them, as if it has wandered into the wrong party by accident.
