weed #157



Among the wonderful things available to folks living in Webster (Where life is worth living) is the abundance of weeds.  You don’t have to go far to find a wide variety of them, especially in my backyard, which I have made a sanctuary yard for weeds.  Occasionally, when they achieve a hight of 2 feet or more, I pull them out (like this guy) but I generally replant them in my neighbor’s yard.  He seems to enjoy them as much as I do.

and I like this guy because he can do this.




I like to stack rocks.  Fortunately, I have a lot of rocks and I’ve stacked many of them.  Some stay up for only a short while but others stay up for months.  The one above is in the farthest corner of the backyard.  The little stone on top gets knocked off once a week by birds.  I know the birds do it because they leave their calling card.  I had to wait for the snow to melt before I found it again.

We visited the Botanical Gardens near Niagra Falls last spring.  The Gardens are on the Canadian side of the Falls, so you may need to bring a valid ID (if you aren’t Canadian). At the gardens, we went to the Butterfly Conservatory there.  If you like butterflies, this is an amazing place.
