My husband has decided that Black-eyed Susan vines are invasive…wow what a wonderful invasive…for some unknown reason these don’t have the “black eyes”…

These are in my weedy little garden…

Does anyone know what this little bush is???  If it’s a weed…break it to me gently!!! It has gorgeous berries…

Wouldn’t it be a shame if it was a weed???

IMG_9739            I may have pruned my rose bush a little early…since it’s putting on new growth…

  10. I love my BES Vine, it is a bit invasive, have to choose your sight carefully when planting it. That is Beautyberry, they grow everywhere here, some people enjoy the beautiful berries in their gardens..

  11. Oh, your garden is so gorgeous and I can't believe you have ripened strawberries. Obviously, no one is telling your garden the date, that is for sure! The black-eyed Susans are so pretty...I hope you keep them.
