....Came summer, and along with it, the weeds.

Summer of 2008, and I was just managing to stay ahead of the weeds. The daylilies had really grown and were beautiful. But other unwelcome visitors were showing up and making it hard to keep that neat, manicured look.

By now I had found echinacea, coreopsis, and black-eyed-susans to throw into the mix, along with some butterfly weed.  I couldn't stick to my 'plan.' For you see, I was still determined to have a cottage garden. Since it was hot, the snaps had long ago faded and I wanted plenty of color. Things were spreading out, and although they don't show quite yet, the nasty weed, the bane of my existence, was planning its evil takeover of my garden.
