LOL - and I hear Tina laughing out loud about your enthusiasm. I'll put a "Weeds for Carl" photo on scrappress I think ... :-P
It's a strange thing. I moved down here to Florida 17 years ago after 22 years in VT. I love to garden and I have always had a soft spot for weed. They're tough and resilient. The two weeds I miss the most are Queen Anne's lace and Sumac, which are the weeds in your picture. I have been able to sow Queen Anne's lace here and it grows quite happily. But Sumac won't work. I miss the leaf pattern ans the glorious red the leaves turn in Autumn.I guess one man's weeds are another one's treat. Jim
James, I'm not knowledgeable about gardening but we have some friends who are very involved and I think the weed definition is changing. Gardens with all sorts of decorative grasses and things like Queen Anne's Lace and Joe Pie Weed (we have a bunch of that and I carefully try to make it propagate each fall because I think it looks spectacular) are being utilized by professional gardeners as parts of planned gardens.
