Too cold for wife to weed. I picked iceberg lettuce for meal recently. Cauliflower growing well.
According to the experts at Chelsea Flower Show, we do not have weeds in our garden, they are 'wild flowers'
Yep, that's almost the definition I know.A weed is pretty much any plant that is
naturallygrowing someplace you don't want it growing.

BTW, my HOA recently sent me a notice of non-compliance for my backyard. One item was the "weeds" in my garden. They attached a photo of my oregano.
I don't like neat, regimented planted gardens, much prefer 'rough around the edges' with a few unexpected pretty faces popping up in random places, looks more natural.
I lost two large, well established bushes in the heat and drought last year in the backyard. I haven't decided what to do about them. I need to do a little work on general "cleanup" back there, perhaps today. Live oak trees drop their leaves in the Spring, not the fall. The leaves are immediately replaced by fresh new ones. My live oak tree is huge, so I'm still dealing with the leaves.
Well said. It's the easiest thing in the world to have a load of straight lines, but it's boring.When it comes to my yard and gardens,... I hate symmetry. Balance, on the other hand, is very important.
