I was complaining today about the beds between our house and Bobby’s, which are completely overgrown with weeds and which kind of got destroyed in the great flood of 09. Whenever I go out to look at them, I think, you know, I could just mow everything down and let it go to grass.
But there are some gorgeous lilies in there and some beautiful irises. And it’s a good, sunny spot.
And the whole yard will probably not regularly flood like that again.
Still, I’m a little distraught over the state of it.
And the person I was complaining about it to says, “And fall will kill those weeds soon enough.”
Maybe it’s just the kind of day I’m having but it felt like wisdom.
So, advise me on this, internet. Will my marigolds reseed themselves? I noticed that I have some baby marigolds just coming up even this late in the season. Will seeds that fall overwinter and grow up next year, do you think? Is overwinter a word?
Wouldn’t it be nice if it was?
