Re: weeds, plants and the weekend

I thought you said you "only" mowed this weekend. LOL!

I only mowed this weekend. Today was lovely...soft breeze, blue skies. We
moved a little fountain to the front of the house where I have a newly
installed outlet. Took four bags of building scrap stuff to the front of
the drive to be picked up today...we pay for weekly garbage pickup.
Pruned, pruned, and pruned some more. My Ducks racked up leaves that had
been gathering on the driveway. Much of it had begun to turn to mulch so I
used it on the new flower bed I am making. My arms are fatigued.

We have had a lovely little lab around since the weekend. He's been
playing and swimming with Sweet Honey Biscuit. I thought he lived a few
cul-de-sacs over from us and didn't pay much attention. Last night, I
thought I heard him barking...SHB was inside and she was her usual quiet
self. This morning he was at the door first thing and very hungry. His
tag had a telephone number which we called. About 30 minutes ago, his
owner came for him...he lives at least five miles away and apparently
followed a jogger and got lost. Makes me think that tags with a telephone
number might be a very good idea.

So what did everyone do this weekend?  Since I am 50 something and not 30
something, didn't get as much done as Theresa and Cyndi do...:)

After spending the weekend pulling weeds, I have no idea where they all
from. It is not like one variety that took over. I seem to have dozens of
kinds here. I don't recall it ever being this bad here before.

I probably killed a few of my wanted plants, as they were so engulfed, I
literally dug up the whole plant and sifted thru them getting all the weed
roots out and replanting the wanted plant. Took forever!

Anyways, a few things are blooming now, so it was nice to find them. Most
the early spring things are done. Kinda worried about my Epimedium
grandiflorum 'Lilafee'. Last look it was blooming, but now it barely has
leaves on it at all.. seems kinda sudden (not for the blooms, but don't
remember it dropping leaves that quick).

Anyone grow a bottlebrush bush (Aesculus parviflora)? It didn't seem to
it by the fence, so I moved it a few weeks ago... seems to be lacking, but
might be getting used to it's new home. What does this bush like?

My ninebark summer wine is blooming for the first time here... looks
Also my lilac bush who's name escapes me at the moment. It is a later
variety so it just started.

I have a three day weekend coming up, so instead of planting, guessing I
will still be weeding.

If anyone needs to get some frustration out, feel free to stop by and dig
out a few weeds. LOL!
