This morning it looked and felt like it could rain any minute, but nothing happened. Without a good soaking, the weeds are almost impossible to get out of the ground, even with a shovel. So I worked above ground, pruning the forsythia and climbing rose so the worker guys can get in and out of the yard.
I took off more than I left. Hopefully, the plants will be okay.
The Virginia creeper also came down, as did all the volunteer mulberry trees around the yard. I retreated to the house for the afternoon - too humid - but when it did not rain, I spent some time watering this evening.
