  1. So many, many things!

    I have oxalis for the first time this year (a green and red one) and have been warned it is really a weed in disguise and will soon cover all earth in the garden. So far, it hasn't spread beyond its starting point and I'm tempted to get more colours and let them fight it out between themselves.


  2. This is one of the reasons I have got my Oxalis in a pot, where I can control it!
