Isn't that the truth, Donna!  Just this morning as I was weeding I was 
wondering why it is that everything seems to want to climb right out of the 
flowerbeds and into the gravel drive and paths.  Everything goes to seed there, and 
perennials just move themselves right over.  I try to give them nice soil to 
make them comfortable in the beds, but no, they like the gravel better.  They're 
as  perverse as my children were.
