Even though I liked the yellow color, I decided to remove it before it got too out of control. It was already getting into the grass, especially further down the border near the deck. I am sure it will continue to come up in places for quite some time because it is impossible to get every little piece out. I will just dig it out as it comes back.
I still have it in a good-sized area in the main arbor garden. I may remove that later today. I was getting eaten alive by bugs, so came in for a coffee break.
I also started removing a bunch of obedient plant (see this post from last fall). It's another of those "almost impossible" to dig out plants, so I put the shovel away and hit it with Round Up in hopes of killing all the roots.
I was not enjoying it and I am sure I can put that space to better use.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
