A warm and sunny day with temperatures in the mid 70’s and breezy. At least the winds have calmed down from the last three days.

I went to the gym then from there drove over to West Jefferson to the plant store I like. I wanted to get there early before things get picked over for Mother’s Day. I found most of the things  I was looking for. From there it was quick ride over to Lowe’s to pick up something I forgot the other day. We are still not out of the woods for some chillier weather so the plants will live in the garage for another week or so. I can start putting plants in the hanging baskets and pots while they are in the garage and then move them.

I came home and fixed some lunch and then started on the weeding. Cold weather does not stop some type of ground covering grass that grows everywhere I do not want it. I managed to get another hour and half of work done before calling it a day.

    At my BOL, if it wasn’t for the unwanted ground cover weeds, I wouldn’t have any green “lawn” at all…. clover looks almost like grass if you mow it, and squint 🙂

    I’ve been thinking of planting mint and some other invasive herbs around the patio area, where there is more shade, and little besides weeds and thorny vines will grow. It will look nice, and smell good too. And every so often we’ll get a really hot day to kill it back so it doesn’t take over the world.

    I’m just “thinking outside the box”, right??

    I don’t mind the clover, which I have along the driveway because it is good for the bees. The folks that built the house sowed a pretty decent lawn but with pasture on three sides there is not much I can do about the weeds in with the grass. I have a lot of ground cover in the one bed to hide the weeds. Stone crop and ice plants work real well.
