Sunrise on the goldfish pond and a lone flowering tobacco before the daylight wilts the flowers.
I spent as long as I could in the garden and thinking as I usually do. How can I look at a veggie seed crossways and it dies, but pull the weeds out, throw them in the walkway and they STILL find a way to get a tiny hair root into the mulch and go on surviving?
How do I ignore the smallest weed one day and the very next it looks as though I was not there for a week? Yeesh!
As you can see from one of the pictures, the peppermint has taken over a good section of the pond. I brought some cuttings to the garden club last week but if someone wants more, just let me know.
The other picture is a tough, stubborn nicotiana (flowering tobacco) that espoontoon gave me 4-5 years ago. I do not remember it being around last year, but apparently it remembered. They flower at night and have a wonderful aroma.
The problem with wildflowers is..... I cannot identify them from other weeds when they are young. Some weeds I know on sight but when I broadcast wildflower seeds in an area, I have to wait until they flower before I know if I want them or not.
I love the colors and beauty of morning glories BUT those buggers show up everywhere! And keep coming!. They are easy to pull but their persistence is enough to ban them from my property FOREVER!
