I hate weeding. But it must be done. Here is my garden sled. Neat, right? It was Mom's idea! It's easier than a wheel barrow sometimes.
This is neat, too, right? I'm wondering how many of you know what it is? (Besides my Mom, of course).
And this incredibly weird, slightly gross mushroom (?) appeared yesterday. The flies were all over it. I did NOT lean close enough to it to see if it smelled bad. The weirdest thing, is that the next day, it was gone.
Mom told me what this was last time she was here, but I've forgotten already...hopefully she can remind me! I used to think it was some weird hybrid growth off the Rose of Sharon, which is right above it. It kind of looks like a Rose of Sharon, but it's definitely not. I don't think I planted this, so either it was there all along, or it came in with something else that I planted in that area.
Another shot of the yucca and rudbeckia, I'm loving this part of the yard right now.
Well, it was unintentional, but the cilantro flowers are pretty!
Reason #3 (after peonies and great Grandma's roses) why the Internet should be scratch and sniff:
They are *quite* tall, too!
