We worked in the (Holly) Magnolia Collection today

Michael used the walk behind bushhog, Ed chainsawed, I weed wrenched, everyone weeded. It's going to look good for this Saturday's magnolia study day.

Most of the weeds we pulled were "winter annuals", that is, plants that germinate in late summer or fall, grow through the winter, flower in late winter or early spring set seed, and die. Lamium atropurpureum and L. amplexicaule are both pretty, but we pull them. I leave many of them in the Adelphi garden.
