A big part of this day was spent doing garden stuff...not the fun and easy stuff but the pulling of weeds! And not little puny, easy to pull type weeds but the ones that have roots that are determined to keep that plant in the ground!
These weeds masquerade as garden flowers and seem to think they belong right there among my roses- crowding them out, in fact!
Indeed, they are attractive in their own way. Butterflies and bees
are drawn to them- making me feel a little guilty in my resolve to get rid of them...however...I did tackle the job!
Here you see a before and after picture of the worst area. (Behind the fish pond) You can see how high and dense the weeds were in the before picture . And you can barely see a couple of roses there in the after picture! But they can be saved - I promise!
Who wouldn't prefer this!
Speaking of roses-my 'Old Country Roses' tea set came a couple days ago. Charles ordered this for my Mother's Day present! SO pretty! Nothing prettier than roses-IMHO!
I'm very tired tonight but it was worth it!
Before long we will have the back yard gardens looking grand! :)
Thanks to everyone for all your concern for my daughter, Tina.
She's doing well and expects to get back to work in about a week.
