Last Year I Was an Idiot
Last year was my first summer at this house. As March and April turned into May, this area was completely overgrown with thorny brambly stuff and I spent hours and hours hacking it down. Then as this weird grass began to grow I mowed it all down. One lone iris survived next to a rock and I got wise about what the weird grass was, real quick. In addition to the iris, it turns out I'd hacked down some peonies as well. I put the cutter down and vowed to let more things grow this year. Except not the brambles. They're going to try and take over again, if I let them.
