Despite being totally clear of weeds 2 weeks ago, I'm now fighting a losing battle against them. Everywhere!

A few pics taken today, about 2 weeks now after the rain. I'll try to take the same views again in another couple of weeks and update the post.

Spitfire. Yes, I have to buy industrial stength Glifosato, but start off with the flame-thrower!!
Funny thing is, Canarias Explosivos won't sell me one litre size bottles, without a licence and reporting in the book, yet will sell me any number of half litre bottles!

A few pics taken this morning at the back of Corralejo dunes - quite a lot of greenery appearing:

The Desert Roses in my garden have suddenly developed loads of leaves and the seed pods have really developed (very strange these seed pods!). Lots of shrubs have started new growth and a flush of flowers.

It’s funny the differences you see from place to place. We were in the pedestrian street in PDR last year near where are outside cafe seats in the middle (about where Norty Sur used to be) & some of the trees there had huge flat brown seed pods ripening. They must have been about 2 inches wide & up to a foot long. Looked really out of proportion to the trees. Saw the same trees this year & the flowers didn’t look in proportion to the pods either ??
