Things are growing and flowering.
The weeds and quack grass are the fastest growers.

And it thrives with no water, unlike my flowers! Grumbling
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Me, too! It's in all my planters and containers, as well! Hate that stuff! It choked out my strawberries back in Oregon. Thumbs down

It's editable so I have used it in salads, etc., but you can only eat so much of the stuff!!! Glare

Some people may consider it edible, but I tried it and as far as I'm concerned, it has NO redeeming social value! Hilarious!

The weeds in general were bad this spring. Summer I dont think quite as bad. We have had wierd weather in northern Mn. It was almost 90 acouply days ago and now it is going to be down to the 40's at night. Very unusual weather. It was a nice spring though for planting grass. We had alot of rain and cooler weather so at least my yard looks nice before the hot/cold came :)

I hate that chickweed -- I got that too. It's choked out one of my Hosta's so bad that once I pulled it all out I found one itty bitty tiny weenie hosta leaf about the size of my fingernail!! -- And that was on Fickle Blue Jeans!! grrr...
