WOW, for somebody that age, it looks like he has done a fabulous job of keeping out the weeds.

It really gives a new perspective when I'm whining about the 5 beds here. It must be glorious to wake up to 100,000 plants blooming. I was thrilled just to see 12 yesterday.

Maybe the daylilies are so thick they don't need weeding?

Wonderful story. Thanks for sharing.
