I also had a not so pleasant surprise. I am starting to see stink bugs on my plants. I have been hearing about them in other places, but this is the first time I noticed them here. Also, Japanese stilt grass is trying to take over our thistle bed, so named because the thistle are trying to take over the day lilies. It will be interesting to see which one of these invasive weeds wins out.
Here are a few things I saw in my Second Look around the yard this week.
