The Oxalis weeds are back
The Oxalis weeds are back with a vengeance all over my garden. In past years it would bother me to no end, but now as an older and mellower gardener, I am learning to co-exist with the devilish weed.
There are only two options to eradicate them.
Nuke the bastards with chemicals (I am wiser than that) or get down on all fours and pull them one by one (Not enough hours in the day)
I have come to the conclusion that during the winter they will be part of my garden and there is very little I can do about it. I will continue to pull those that mock me, the one’s growing in containers or next to a favorite plant, and the rest can stay.
Smart Oxalis growing among my spiny bromeliads, I won’t touch that one.
Nice surprise, I found this orchid today. This one is growing in one of my palm trees, it gets very little attention from me, may be that's why I have not managed to kill her yet.
