I am at war with this nasty climbing weed. My neighbor on the right side of the house has let this weed go wild on his property and now it has jump to my side. This nasty plant is impossible to stop. Every week I pull branches jumping on to my garden. Today I noticed that it was covering the top of my Firebush tree, it only took a few days and it already was covering the top of the tree and moving on to the mango tree. I don’t know the name of this weed, but I am going to have a talk with my neighbor and see if he let me try to fight it from his side of the yard.
This week at the DragonFly Garden
The summer heat has arrived and is time to pull out all my winter flowers, and plant summer hardy plants like Moss Rose and Purslane.
Periwinkles are another strong summer flower for us; the good news is that they grow wild everywhere. I let them grow to give color to the summer garden.
Mango season is in full swing; this is my neighbor’s tree. I did not get a single mango this year from my two trees. I made the mistake last year of over pruning both trees after the last mango was picked.
This Cardinal couple has taken residence in my garden; they like to come to the feeder and the water fountain in the late afternoon after all the other birds are gone.
