Guess what I saw by the side of the road in Wakefield this afternoon? I don't know it's Giant Hogweed for a fact, but it has all the signs: purple blotches on the stem, large ragged leaves and a truly menacing head of thick white flowers.
I'll be calling the Wakefield municipal office about it tomorrow. No-one wants this monster to go to seed, believe me. I'll let you know what they say. In the meantime, don't touch anything.
