An ex-shrubbery

This morning this was an utter mess, with dogwoods and mock sweet orange bushes all wild and unkempt, with a patch of gout weed trying to take over.

Next we’ll cover the patch to try and kill the goutweed, and wait to see what comes up from the shrub roots.

Flopping

Transplanted this variegated goutweed from Mike’s place to fill in the crappy side garden. Hope the floppiness is from the move, and is not indicative of my gardening abilities.

Max

Max is under the weather, and so lethargic I took him to the vet today. It looks like he has a cold, poor thing.
