Weeds or wildflowers....beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Blooming China Berry Tree
Paperwhites bloomed in the flower garden this year. It's the first time I've seen them here at the lake. The Daylilies are starting to bloom and this Purple Verbena is one of my favorite go to summer flowers.
This little plant came up in the flower garden for the first time, too. My neighbor thinks it might be a raspberry bush. I've decided to leave it be and watch it for a few weeks. If it is a raspberry bush, I'll keep it and if not, up it comes.
Environmentally Safe Weed Killer
1 gallon vinegar (I used white)
2 cups Epsom salts
1/4 cup original blue Dawn dish detergent
Mix all ingredients in a garden sprayer. Spray the mixture on weeds in the morning, after the dew has dried and by the evening the weeds should be gone.
**Update: I thought the weeds would have shriveled up, but that is not the case. However, from the looks of it, the weeds are dying. I'm not sure if this kills the roots, but I'll continue to experiment. I hope it works completely because I like the idea of using something safer for the environment than those harsh weed killers on the market, today. I'll let you know.
Have a happy day,
P.S. Cliff took Lidia and Sawyer camping last night on Goat Island. I can't wait to hear the stories that come out of that.
