Remember what this area looked like a few weeks ago. Ah! What a pretty sight but oh what a mess those bluebonnets leave behind leave behind with spent foliage and dried petals.
It took two days of work to clean out the plants before they threw their seed. I gathered them all up and took them to areas where I would be much happier to see them bloom and it will be much less work for me.
Then I had to use the blower to blow out all the leaves from the overhanging live oak tree and collect them up. I am happy to see the rocks and pebbles again. There are a few plants still remaining; others that have seeded themselves like Mexican feather grass, zexmenia and lantana.
Maybe just the odd bluebonnet here and there next year. Maybe time to add a few more agaves and succulents.
