Red Admiral Butterfly on 'Mind Your Own Business'



Comments on this photo

 

It's neither a clover nor a fern, it is a small leaved creeping plant that likes fairly damp places and, once you have it in your garden, it is hard to be rid of it! It forms a dense carpet. Its common name is Mind Your Own Business - I don't know what it's Latin name is!

If this is what I think it is. I've got it everywhere. I kind of like the look of it, but one it gets in somewhere you don't want it, it's really hard to get rid of. It rips out easily, but comes right back!

That's the stuff! People who haven't got it are envious but those who have don't know how to keep it in check!

My mother-in-law calls it Baby Tears. She hates this stuff and it constantly trying to get rid of it.
