Its spring here in the Northern Hemisphere and probably the most difficult time of the year for me as a gardener because I have to show such restraint.
 
I can't just go out there and play in the dirt.

I have to sit back and watch what comes up least I not recognize it and weed it out.

Last year's perennials coming up from their roots are very assertive and identifiable, but what's seeded itself hasn't had enough warmth to be very far up yet.

Its fun watching what invites itself into my yard to grow each spring. 
I tell my grandchildren that one can pretty much get a clue about a person by what invites itself into their yard if they've been living in that place for a while.

Mayapples and mullein, jewelweed and plantain all invited themselves to live in my yard.

I invited valerian into my backyard last year, b/c I missed it from my old house, where it grows wild. So I went to my old 'hood, picked some, and brought it home. Now I'm over-run, but their roots are so shallow, and they're easy to pull out.

Where to begin? Pretty my everything in my yard is a weed...from little weeds that put out evil berries trying to pass as strawberries to this sticky stuff that sticks to you when you walk by and irritates your skin if you get any on you. I've also got tons of little oak trees coming up everywhere that are now too big to pull, so I'm going to have to cut them.
I am pleased by several random tomato plants that turned up. One even produced a couple of tomatoes until they were stolen by some animal. Sad

Ever think of getting out a book or consulting someone to see what those berried or sticky stuff weeds' identification are?

Part of my personal path working has been identifying what plants I don't recognize and learning their relationships to various Elements, planets, et cetera.

What really struck home with me on this was when I noticed, same local weather environment but some weeds grew better in the neighbor's yard, or not, than in my own. It was as if they'd chosen to guardian an individual, or not.



But then, it might be just a simple case of the difference of chemical balance of the soil.

Here in San Francisco, where every neighborhood has it's own microclimate, there are quite a few plants that will only grow in one part of town, sometimes only on one side of the street.
