I know this sounds weird, but I think I managed to pull up the last of the bittersweet in the garden. Owen and I have been uprooting it. Every time we pass the garden, we look. If we see the plant, we grab it and pull it out, root and all. Yesterday, I pulled out two big vines with long rooots. After that, I couldn’t find any more. I’m sure it’ll show up again, but for now, it’s gone.
The garden is still a mess and full of plants I don’t recognize. They aren’t flowers, but they aren’t bindweed either. They have straight stems and flat leaves. I have no idea what it is or where it came from, but at least it isn’t trying to consume other plants.
Meanwhile, we are growing a lot of daylilies and the roses are growing. There are a lot of buds, so I think we are going to have a lot of roses. But the garden is a mess, so taking pictures of the flowers is interesting. Very. Interesting.
These pictures were all taken yesterday afternoon. If anyone recognizes that tall, dark green plant with the wide flat leaves, can you tell me what it is?
