Perennial Problem

Someone seems to think that the nearest thing we have on Raasay to a village green, with the phone boxes and a bench, is the ideal place to dump rubble and garden waste:


For a month or so I have been wondering whether to record or uproot the Centaurea montana (Perennial Cornflower) that is growing in this mess. It has obviously come from a garden but on balance I have decided that it improves the fly-tipped rubble.

To my surprise, I also spotted today a well-established specimen of another garden plant that had previously escaped my attention. Symphoricarpos x chenaultii (Pink Snowberry) is growing by the Arish Burn about 130m from our house. That’s two new plants to add to the Raasay list – though neither is particularly welcome.
