I took these photos with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 pocket-size camera. (It's called the ZS40 in North America.)

but the first... Field Bindweed or Lisseron des Champs...
very pretty, but an absolute pest in the potager!!
But I selectively mow around the Chicory plants...

a flood of it is even better...
one of our local graziers rotates his cattle around four or five fields...

Excellent photos! But I think the commenter above is right about the bindweed. So difficult to eliminate. A terrible weed.ReplyDelete
