Fence dude says it’ll be six weeks before he can get started. Bleah. Anybody want to place bets on what’ll be the next plant to disappear? Daylilies? Wintercreeper? Lavender?
I tell you what: it better not be the resurrection lilies I dug up from my parents’ yard the day my dad died. I’ll personally hunt down the creep who takes those.
Of course anyone who wants to come pull up weeds is more than welcome. There are always about 20,000 hackberry seedlings scattered around the yard from all the trees. I can spot those things from across the yard now. I find myself absentmindedly plucking hackberry seedlings out of neighbors’ yards as we chat, just out of force of habit.
All this garden drama reminds me I was going to mention here that one of our next-door neighbor’s friends referred to our yard as “Cheekwood Jr.” I really liked that.
