Fast grow the weeds

Image sourced from Wikipedia

Three big bin bags of weeds and still going.

I was under the impression that I had wild strawberries growing in my garden. Alas, they are not.

They are instead, creeping cinquefoil or potentilla reptans.

How do I know this?

Because I found some wonderful online resources for identifying weeds:

This one has weeds defined by flower colour. Incredibly handy!

This one has pictures of leaf types to help identify what those stray plants actually are.
