Jungle Season

Jungle season usually comes before the cat days of spring and may continue indefinitely depending on the rain situation.  We've had a pretty wet spring so when the sun came out, everything turned green and GREW!  That's fine for flowers and trees, but not so much for the things that aren't supposed to be in the flower garden.  I spent some time this morning removing grass, lilac shoots, and vines from some of the flower beds. 

Tip of the day? Vines are a bad idea in the South. I say very unladylike things about whoever planted them every time I yank, pull, and untangle them from the lilacs, roses, peonies, and everything else they're trying to choke. Today's photos are of the peonies (pee-OH-nees here in the South) before they went by. So pretty!
