Well, I'd certainly hope that after almost 7

, Foxglove would've finally achieved his 'fragrant yard'.


But just in case, the weed known to many a lawn care professional as 'ground ivy' ( Glechoma hederacea) is actually a member of the mint family....

As kids, we used to play tackle football in my grandparent's yard, which was all weeds; primarily ground ivy.
When we were done the grown ups could always tell what we'd been up to... from the moment they smelled us coming into the house!


If you travel in Europe at all you'll often see patches of pleasant-smelling chamomile spilling out and away from 'old' gardens; much the same way wild violets do here on this continent.
