I came to the conclusion while weeding this afternoon that after almost thirty some years as a homeowner I would make peace with the weeds that populate my garden and flower beds.
I decided I can live with a certain amount of things growing that I did not plant. Mostly, I think I’m just tired of trying to eradicate every little thing that is not an ornamental flower.
I drew a line in the yard – the weeds get to live happily ever after over there and any of them who cross the line get yanked. I think it’s an enlightened live and let live attitude and I’m glad I finally figured it out.
