The west yard has become overgrown in the past few years.
We’ve had to remove a huge dead oak tree the stump of which is now covered with vines — Virginia creeper, grapevine, and honeysuckle. We’ll sort it out.
In the mean time some of the perennial flowers have begun to bloom.
There’s a little pink rosebush that always seems to put out a bloom or two.
There are also large and gaudy deep pink peonies.
I’d love to take them in the house except they look so great in the yard.
The next chore in this area is to dig up the orange ditch lilies that spread too easily.
The beautiful flowers make the upkeep worth the work.
What’s your weedy nemesis?
