To keep or not to keep
I used to keep all the decent plants that self seeded, or at least try to find a home.... now I'm much more ruthless but still a pushover for a healthy seedling. This summer I have a clump of self seeded sunflowers right next to the front door and a couple more an inch from the driveway. They're too big and look out of place, even a little weedy looking but will I get rid of them?
Of course not.
That's my morning thought since my BIL next door just sheared all his shrubs into little meatballs and cut back most of the perennials. It looks very neat, but no sunflowers. I'm my own worst enemy as far as design and order go.... even the veggie garden rows are being invaded by marigolds and verbena bonariensis.
