You've managed to find a subject I know even less about than trains. I can only manage red flower, yellow flower, blue flower ...

A weed is a plant in the wrong place!

Or as they say in Ghana, regarding any unfamiliar plant "If it grows prolifically or spreads everywhere, then it cant be edible"

A proper intercity train has a minimum of 8 coaches, gangwayed throughout, with first at one end, and a full sized buffet car between first and standard.
It has space for cycles, surfboards,luggage etc.
A 5 car DMU is not a proper inter-city train. The 5+5 and 9 car DMUs are almost as bad.

Indeed, the joys of French-flavoured lockdown have prompted me and the dogs to spend much more time in the garden. We were particularly pleased to see this very twiggy-with-little-planty-thing-sticking-out appear at the perfect height for dogs to take care of business at.

Cue the missus with "Let me show you this rose that I'm rehabilitating..."

Bananas and coconuts would seem to be exceptions to that, assuming Ghana has the appropriate climate; never been to Ghana but I'd be surprised if it hasn't.

I use weed and feed but it seems to kill the grass and feed the weeds.
