In the continuing saga of me against the weeds, I think I've won the battle over two areas in front of my house.
Yes, those weeds are indeed a bit over 5 feet tall. Why is it that weeds always grow better than most anything else?
Much better. There will be more chapters of these on-going battles as I work my way around the yard. The idea is to make outside maintenance much easier on myself. I figure if I get these areas settled, I will have much more time in the summer to enjoy other, more fun things.
I started the Summer in Kansas shawl and am actually having some success. In the past, lace has been quite a battle involving much frogging and swearing that I'll never knit lace again. This time, I'm really quite content and enjoying it. Note to self: Must get an assistant to hold shawls in progress; they don't look like much just hanging there.
