This was yesterday…..

Yesterday something was niggling me – you know the type of something which annoys you – and it hacks you off? So I took my revenge on the weeds and guess who came out best?
Exactly!

  1. A backbreaking job but worth it in the end, although I do like to see the odd weed growing where it shouldn't.

  2. Dandelions are such a lovely cheery colour don't you think? Impossible to eradicate, especially when your neighbours let them run riot and the seeds blow about. Have you ever tried coffee made from dandelion root? I got some once in Holland and Barrett years and years ago, and actually, it was rather nice and I preferred it to coffee.

  7. So which cure did you go for? I am having good results with all 3, but we'll have to wait and see if any regrow!

  8. The results you see kath are with the boiling water - but I am now digging out the roots. I will then pour boiling water + vinegar down all of the cracks/spaces in the patio! What a task!

  9. Thanks Denise for your comment! Seeing your yard, I can tell you that I have also tiles in the back and front yards. So I also have to fight against the weeds of which the dandelions are the most difficult to remove. But the difference between for and after weeding is great!

  10. Good job! Hope your back and/or your knees are holding up. And let's hope you don't have to do this ever again! :D

  12. I am so glad the vinegar is helping.

    The Dandylions wouldn't last a second in Tucson many of the wild animals living around my home would devour them in a second !

    cheers, parsnip

  16. Good job, but it makes my back ache just to think about it!
    I know what you mean about things niggling at you, though. Nice to do something about it.

  17. I quite like dandelions but then I don't have a garden so don't have to dig them up ;)

  18. I'm glad you were able to work off the negativity, Denise. You can come weed my gardens anytime - not the dandelions, though, as I rather like them.

  19. I think some of your weeds flew over to my back yard. Next week its clean flowerbeds, plant some new flowers, and get ready for our Family BBQ May 1st for my 70th BD.

    I will post picture of the back yard afterwards....not as brave as you. HaHa

  21. The weeds looked kind of cute ;-)

  22. I am impressed! Let us know how the vinegar works. I'll try it.

  23. Is that a rooster or hen in the bottom of the photo?
    Your patio looks marvelous now.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Always feel great when I get rid of the weeds.

    I was thinking of you today. Did you watch on the news?

    Some one knitted a whole lot of dolls for Kate and Williams wedding.

  25. If I were to execute anything on that I'd leave the 'weeds' alone. The yellow thingies look ok to me. Then arrange things a bit, and viola! ... charming sun-drenched patio with a rooster to boot :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. How tidy you are. I've learned to love those little pokes of green and blooms that force themselves to fill the cracks. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sometimes it's better taking things out on weeds, than on loved ones or on people or things that will be counterproductive. This way, you get it out AND have a beautiful yard too.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Did you make wine out of those weeds to null our niggling? : )

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ah, the Niggle treatment ~ seems to have worked really well. Perhaps you'll feel like having fish and chips on the patio after smelling your next treatment of vinegar ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow, you did well!! If I were weeds, I would want to be anywhere near you.

  31. Dandelions can look quite pretty when they're in flower, not that they get to flower for long on my lawn!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Mrs. N, not to nag but I must admit I have two minds about dandelions. And usually the mind that wins is the "aren't they pretty!" one.

  33. Wow, you did work hard! I quite like dandelions myself, though!

    ReplyDelete
  34. You picked a good patch to go to work on - it's great when the results are immediately obvious isn't it? Looking good :) Mo

    ReplyDelete
  35. WOW! You sure got a lot of weeding done. Although, I kind of liked the dandelions.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yep, its this time of year that you just have to take a deep breath, roll up the sleeves and get on out there and do it.

    But boy oh boy, doesn't it feel good when it is done!

    And doesn't it look good too!

  37. Hi Denise, thanks for visiting my blog. As you've seen, I don't destroy the dandelions - I just eat them!!
