These are the weeds in my side-yard. At least they were, until I cut them down the other week. My side yard is a no-man's land. Sometimes I like to let it go "natural" because it can attract lots of bugs, but it starts to get out of hand, and then it's a real pain in the wazoo to clean it up. So I cut the weeds down.
It's a jungle out there.
After I cut down the weeds in the side yard, I tackled the suckers of Chinese Elm sprouting on the hill in the back yard. On a stump where I had clipped off a bunch of suckers, there was this little snout beetle. A victim of deforestation.
