Welcome to Marshwood Cottage where we honor our weeds!
Come on in, we have something to show you...
When we moved to Marshwood Cottage only 16 months ago, it was early spring and the ground was still frozen. Novice gardeners that we are, we barely knew a perennial from a weed. We felt so blessed at each sprouting plantling and didn't have the heart to pull out or remove anything for a long time.
The most spectacular weed we have is our wild white roses. There are pink ones too, but they are tucked in the back. Tamed and trimmed by MamaLindy, they make quite a show in late June.
The most bothersome weed we have is mugwort. The root system is woody and persistent, but we left a patch next to the garden phlox to hold up the delphinium.
MamaLisa's most favorite weed is jewel weed. So magical...
Come back next Wednesday for more beautiful weeds!
