I moved into a great new place yesterday, with a garden. I have hit the Holy Grail of Paris-area apartments. However. Garden has plants from previous tenant. I have cats. Cats will nom the plants. I'm unfamiliar with a few of the plants, and am particularly worried about curious noms of this one. MeFi, can my cats eat these? Or should I remove them? [more inside]
I seem to have loads of brassica plants (cauliflower?) cropping up in my flowerbeds. I've sprinkled various mixed flower seed but no veg! They maybe are from previous tenants? (My first summer in this house). They are taking over but I'm reluctant to pull them up in case they are actually from my flower seeds! Gardeners of MeFi, can these be anything else or do you think they are definitely veg?
I have a bunch of flowers in my yard. Pic 1. Pic 2. What are they? I am particularly interested in the blue one, but there are an awful lot of flowers.
So, about a year and a half ago, we bought a house! Awesome. For the first time, I have a back yard and a front yard and a lawn and... stuff, and I don't know, maybe because I'm old and boring now, I've started to give a crap about making my lawn look nice. Something is really starting to piss me off... [more inside]

Please identify this houseplant. This tall and skinny houseplant intrigues me, and I would like to get my own. Who can tell me what it is, and possibly where I would go to get one? (i am a plant newb)
We've had high winds the last few days, and these tiny purple flowers have been drifting into my yard from parts unknown. I am obsessed with finding out what they are! [more inside]
Can you help me identify this mystery plant/fruit? Will it kill my dog if he eats it? Is it edible? Photos included! [more inside]
What are these creepy little bugs on my flowering plants? They don't appear to be causing much damage, but they're gross and are creeping me out. They steer clear of the herbs and veggies, and only seem to swarm on a couple of flowering plants, mostly on the leaves and stems.
