    I have been unable to eradicate mine, so I think yours are safe. Their long, thick, luscious underground root system is a pest tp everything else. They are pretty, though!

    Also, I had to look up the spindletree to identify it. Looks like this when ripe(ning) (hey look pink berries!!!), and apparently the wood is used for … DUNDUNDUNNNN!!! … spindles. So that was a neat thing to learn, as they look very exotic and non-native when in full fruity colour. And alien.

    Apropos of nothing much, it is now, for this region, freezing cold outside. The various websites cannot agree, putting in in the range 0–5; that 5 is absurdly high, and my own estimate is 0 or perhaps 1-ish, and a distinct possibly of a small drop below freezing during the night (some sites agree). It probably felt colder yesterday due to the Mistral wind (which is not blowing at the moment).
