I took the Gerber Daisy pic for a sister to have tattooed on her fine a$$. She has legs all the way to her a$$ and is putting it just above where the legs end and the WOW begins.
The morning Glory are along my driveway

I plant alot field edges and set aside crop fields with sead/cover and mast producers to create or improve habitat. Dept.Game and Fish recommends favored plantings. Planted several hundred Christmas trees 7 yrs back from bare root saplings that were 5 to 9 inch twigs. Now some are 16-20 feet tall (white pine) most are waist to chest tall. Deer ruined alot with antler rubbing, but its planted for all the critters anyway!. Pics are Gerber Daisy and mornng Glory vines on the farm. Cut

New Guinea Impatients are my fav flower along with regular impatients, snapdragons, petuinas, and a little hens & chickens here and there.

Veggies? ... had onions, green peppers, h0t peppers, cherry tomatoes, and 6 foot tomatoe plans (fence was 5 foot ... lol).

Luv gardening. Barefoot. Relaxing and good for the soul.

Just get a kitty cat for the back yard, you won't have nothing left to eat your plants.

I have one of those Bon-si looking trees. Looks cool to. But I have the gold wing to thank for it. I never trimed it, I'm not that good. I think it's because it's located rite behind the Bikes pipes. Poor thing.

This is too funny! Thanks to you ladies I feel much better about my garden. But really I do have flower beds, but only the good looking weeds are allowed to grow in em. A weed can be trimmed around it in a way they actually look good. I had a walk way that was lined with ferns, I loved that spot so much I trimed it really nice, put down some plant food and they all died on me.
That anoying vine that grows down here, the one that kills every thing. I built a tressel for it, now we're both happy. And some people say they like it but can't believe it's a weed.
There's a place where I clean my birds cage. I just put some stones around it and now have a spot where flowers grow year round. Some are really big to, about 6ft.
I agree tho if you look, you can find some great looking weeds. Ah whats in a name anyway.

Thank you again
Chkn

I've turned my thinking around. I now like weeds. I do much better with them. Nature choses the spot and plants them. They grow anyway no matter what I do. Some even have flowers! As you can see from my picture, it's not that I don't try with hanging plants. I'd love to have a garden but I can't afford the gardener.
I never go wrong with merrigolds tho.

weeds are just plants that are growing where we don't want them

i have 2 flower beds that i put wildflower seeds in and just let them be
so to some there are weeds in them--to me i don't have to do anything but look at flowers

but i did inherit a green thumb

Pink Mandevilla!
My favorite, had this big hole in the bottom of my pine tree out front from termites I killed so I filled it with potting soil and shoved it in there, cool.
