Also the "hmmm..wonder what this is?"

I'm doing that, but in established beds as opposed to containers. I have just recently gotten a chance to do some serious weeding in a couple of very weedy flower beds.

I 'think' there 'might' be several pink butterfly bush seedlings, so have carefully weeded and worked around them...will have to take them up later.

I also found a really unique purple leafed something at the edge of the bed, unlike anything else I have anywhere...will have to move or pot that up too.

Then there is something that might be pink butterfly weed, or maybe a short yellow primrose (that I love) that has never reseeded. I guess only time will tell.

Boy things are wet here, with more rain expected these next several days. As I get a small area weeded, I plan to get the corn gluten meal (seed germination suppressant) down so the weeds won't start coming up again soon before the mulch gets spread.

I have some things I'm "watching" in a couple of beds..I haven't a clue what they are yet...I think that's one of the more fun aspects of gardening!
