My Planting Ways

The flowers grow in mini spurts in broad daylight.
But weeds can spring up eight feet tall overnight.
Renegade trees have taken over my lovely flowers.
I clipped them down to the ground April in her showers.

This year they returned more determined than ever to be.
Overplanting has caused shade all over by bush and tree. 
The sun cannot reach the flowers clearly now at all.
That’s on me. I am the master gardener afterall.

I know it sounds weird, but I have weeded a certain spot, pulling the weeds out by their roots, and the next day, one LONE 8 foot WEED is standing there grinning at me.

I had so many things that I liked in the "back forty" so I dug up some plants I liked and moved them closer to the house.

Either you're in control or not... Weeds don't ask permission to grow...how tall fast or slow.... Nice one

I am not in control. The older I get the more I arrive at this conclusion.
