Yes I spent about 2 hours literally playing in the mud "weeding". I put that in quotes because I need to define a weed. A weed is a flower out of place. My front gardens are mostly perenials that self propagate. Sometimes they choose to grow in an area that I don't want them.
My focus today was quack grass, dandilions, bachelor buttons,and hollyhocks. So yes, there were some flowers pulled out today. The challenge of a perenial garden like mine is keeping one type of flower from taking over the others. I try to spend two to three hours a week tending to these gardens. I almost didn't have the opportunity this weekend with 2.5 inches of rain.
Those few spots where you can see soil in the matter of a few weeks will be filled in with appropriate flowers.
