My backyard is hideous - it is not something to be proud of. It is very small, does not get very much sun and is covered with uneven patio slabs and weeds. There is a battered, tatty and faded blue back gate and a shed which homes our washing machine and tumble dryer. Compared to the inside of our house, which was renovated a couple of years ago, the outside area is such a let down! It needs an over haul but hasn't been done yet.
I really wish we had a little garden, somewhere for Burton to play but alas we do not. One day soon we will move to a place with a garden which will be lovely, although not being green fingered I wouldn't want a massive garden!
Anyway, I digressed. So I am too ashamed off my backyard to take a photo of it to show what it actually looks like. Therefore, instead I am going to share with you this plant - well weed really - which must have shot up in the last few days because I hadn't noticed it at the weekend! It is huuuge and has such a thick stalk!
So here is my aptly named 'weedstalk' which our backyard has nurtured!! Taken from its front and back.
I wonder how tall it would get if I left it alone? Would I find a giant and a golden goose/egg at the top??!
