i was sitting on my gravel patio thinking hmmm quite a few weeds are taking root guess i’ll need to pull a few.
then i noticed that some of the weeds are wildflowers not sure what they’re called but they have a nice silvery gray leaf cluster base and produce a tall pink blossom. and about 7 or 8 of them were in a perfectly straight line about 2 inches in from the edge of the patio.
so i thought i’ll leave those and let them flower. they’ll be cute.
then i noticed that on the other side of the concrete patio edge little yellow blooms were peeking over. they were also a wildflower weed i think called broom. and they were perfectly aligned with the to-be-pink plants. and i thought oh wow. i’ll have a pink & yellow hedge along 7 or 8 feet of my patio border. what fun.
well today i was sitting on the patio and thought something’s different. hmmm.
then i noticed the yellow bloom plants were missing. i know some people consider them evil weeds that spread like crazy but really this is bush country. no one has a cultivated garden.
a friend suggested maybe the deer ate them.
just looked over the railing at where the largest broom plant used to be. there’s a hole so it was uprooted and carried off. i’m suspecting by a human dear.
it’s amazing how quickly things pass at the moment.
i spent a few hours being disappointed & pissed.
then moved on to questioning whether or not i would just can the whole project and also remove the pink plants because i will have tons of them on the other side of the railing. it was the combo of the pink & yellow that i had envisioned.
haven’t decided 100% but that’s a strong possibility.
