the weeds

I haven’t been able to spend much time in the yard/garden these past few weeks due to all of the rain we’ve been getting (nor did we get to do any additional Thunder activities last weekend–Saturday was awful!) and now everything is overrun with weeds. I always say that the majority of my gardening time is spent weeding, but this is ridiculous.

But, if there’s one good thing to be said about cooler, rainy weather, it’s that the water hyacinths in my pond really seem to like it. The new fish we bought are thriving as well. And, I love the new pond filter–the self-cleaning feature is really nice. I should have purchased it years ago.
