Our place is conducive to poison ivy and oak and it was all over my beautiful perennial beds. D had C - the wonderful young man who cares for our property - spray the poison with Roundup. Unfortunately, C and his crew got a bit carried away and some of the flowers got zapped along with the poison. I spent about an hour trying to get one bed cleaned up. That's my plan - an hour every time we go up. It won't make a dent but at least I can say I tried.
So, while battling the weeds I noticed some beautiful yellow wildflowers along the edge of the lawn. I risked the bees to snip a few to bring inside. They look lovely in the little pillow "vase"

An amazing thing happened over the weekend - I actually paid attention to my body and stopped eating before the plate was clean - most meals. I liked that.
