It’s Time to Play…. Name! That! Plant!!!
Every year about this time, I play a game I like to call Weed? or Sprout?. In the weeks (month?) since I planted dozens of new seeds in my front garden – dozens of things have begun to sprout. Add monsoon rains, a dash of sunshine, and some transplants are suffering, but other new seeds seem to be thriving.
I started with a freshly weeded bed, added a couple new bags of soil and topped everything with mulch.
But the fact that the rain has enabled them to grow makes me wonder. Like this one – is it an offshoot of an existing lily that somehow migrated 5 feet north? Or is it a really big weed?
Or this one? The spiky leaves either indicate marigolds (yay!) or unidentified weeds (boo!):
With all the rain – despite the beautiful weekend, everything was still soupy wet – I haven’t had a chance to investigate further. But I’m sure when I do… I’m going to have a lot of weeding. Sigh.
