I took these pictures around the first of March, and forgot about them! This is my neighbor's Japanese Cherry Blossom. It is absolutely gorgeous. I want to try to root it. Has anyone every rooted one?
I worked in the yard all weekend! Two days worth of work, and all I mainly did was pull weeds! I planted some things, and moved some things....but majority of my time was spent battling un-welcome guests.
I am convinced that no place in the world has as many weeds as the coastal South. You can't possible have more, or else you couldn't garden from all the weeds. I pulled 3 garbage bags full of weeds from all of my flower beds! If I could find a medicinal purpose from the weeds in my garden, and sell them....I would be a millionaire. I am at constant battle with the weeds. The rattlesnake weed is going to be the death of me! It makes me so mad when I am out there digging its roots up, that I find myself talking to it. Yes, thats right.....I talk to weeds! Clearly this means I am not sane. Ofcourse, in my opinion....gardeners are not sane people. We purposely do things that most people wouldn't even dream of doing.
My landscape project that I did a few weekends ago for example. My aunt came over and told me that I was crazy. No one in their right mind would attempt to do all of that, and I should have just paid someone.
Gardeners do this type of thing every day and every weekend....that is just all part of it.
I question my sanity when I am talking to weeds! I suppose I am ok, until they start talking back!
