     The dreaded understory of gardening: cleaning the yard up after Winter's tantrums & maintenance. Cleaning up the fallen branches, regularly watering the precious seeds & plants -- i hate watering! It's really a hassle when the grass grows too. Eventually we will replace it with ground cover plants.
     As for weeds, hey, I live in the country. If it flowers, it is ok with me! As the saying goes, "all my weeds are wildflowers."
     I totally decimated the woodpile, winter wimp that I am. So, somehow, we have to get it re-stocked.
     Anyone have any extra garden gnomes around?

  2. We just started our spring clean up and let me tell you I hear you.

  3. Ugh - the grass. I tackled it this last week. It had grown so tall that I had to do a pop a wheely with the lawn mower for the first pass.

    I live in an HOA and the lovely morning glory that was growing all over my porch making the entry way look very rustic. I thought it was pretty. They declared it was weeds and told me to get rid of it.

  4. People have a strange idea what is weeds! I was checking my morning glory and moonflower sprouts under front porch where we have white lattice work around- imagine my surprise to find snapdragons growing secretly under the porch!!! it just tickles me where things pop up sometimes! My body might pass on and become dust but my planting will live on! Talk about making your mark in the world!
