Well, I'd certainly hope that after almost 7

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

:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

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!
:rolleyes:

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.
