    My garden is quite a mess but with some careful editing I'll share a few gems that are holding their own against the invasive buttercups and other obnoxious weeds. The hostas are looking the best and this area has fewer weeds than the sunnier parts of the yard.

    Now I'm off to pack for a couple of days of camping at a hot spring to take a break from weeding that will take a year to catch up with.

    There's lots if eye candy there to look at....and I think I'm drooling a little. ;) I love the hosta, but the picture of the holly hock and clematis is beautiful with the contrasting colors! Everything looks great!

    Love the hollyhock! (Just planted a dark purple one out back. Hopefully it'll grow - hoping)
