Wild Velcro Plant

In an attempt to clean out my flower gardens, I have raked leaves, pulled weeds, and clipped branches. While sprucing up the yard, we bagged dog doo and removed rodent carcasses. It is a race against time and temperatures. The warmer the weather the faster the flowers flourish, the grass grows, and small dead bodies stink. Some plants are not appreciating my efforts. Yesterday I was attacked by the vicious velcro plant. They were all over my elbow when I returned to the house.


  1. sneaky little stickily buggers!

  2. Yes, they are! Who invited them into my garden anyway?

  3. This is a new one for me!! that where we get the idea!!?

  4. "I will stick to Christ as a burr to a topcoat."

    Those burrs reminded me of this quote that I have on my sidebar.

    Have a wonderful Easter Weekend with your family.

  5. Yes, Wanda, Velcro was inspired by burdock.

    Joy, I have enjoyed that quote on your blog. Makes me smile. :)
