The beds themselves don’t look too bad. The ground covers don’t leave them much room. Soon all those swaths of purple will turn brown, though, and it will literally take me weeks to deadhead. With the wedding coming up on June 3rd, I don’t have time to be snipping 10,000 flower stems. Last year I selected a bed to experiment on, and gently weed-whacked the dead blossoms. I’m going to go back and look again, but I don’t think it looks any different. I may end saving myself some serious time. We’ll see!
The rest of the yard is full of weeds, but that’s par for the course.
