I took a hobble through the gully yesterday. This area was shaded by the large oak tree for several decades. Here's a sampling of what's popped up since the last weekend in July.
Lots of pokeweed.
Bindweed, Virginia creeper, and cannas. Now I know why one came up in the grass by the driveway.
Tree of heaven. LOTS of these.
And lots of mimosa seedlings.
And tomatoes? Yep. Several clumps. Next summer should be interesting as things grow back for sure.
I really like my cosmos. I wish I hadn't sown them where I planted roses.
Finally some ladybugs are appearing. The milkweed 10' away is covered with aphids and not a single ladybug in sight.
The pile at the end of the driveway is back to newly rooted cuttings and things I don't know where to plant yet.
It's cloudy and 75. Light sprinkles at 6am this morning. Rain in the forecast for this evening. Robert will be here around 3pm when I get home from work. I'm so ready to get started.
