I also learned a wonderful trick. You see, we have well water, so I have not allowed my hubby to use pesticides or herbicides on out lawn. Well, after years of that, dandelions and lamb's ear (?) have taken over a good portion of our lawn (if we can still call it a lawn). Earlier last week I heard that you could kill weeds by taking white vinegar + spray bottle + sunshine, and when sprayed directly on weeds, dead weeds! Well, I had to try it. Well, guess what? It works (don't do a mass spraying, just directly on weeds themselves as it will kill other plants.). And, it provides almost instant gratification. Take a look at these once live dandelions a few hours after spraying:
The grass was already sunburned in this area - so the vinegar did not hurt the grass - it was already in that condition. I am just so happy to have a natural way to kill the weeds in my yard. And my husband is thrilled to see way fewer dandelion seeds blowing in the wind.
I also managed to catch a few pictures or a beautiful hawk that appears to have made a nest in my yard somewhere - in a few days you may be able to catch a few pictures of it o my zazzle site.
So, what did you take pictures of this weekend?
