Lost in the jungle

Most people use their gardens to grow things but I'm trying to get things to stop growing so much. This year's days of sun alternating with downpour have made all the greenery grow even more wildly than usual. This is a temperate rainforest area (jungle, in other words) but still....
From this angle, it looks as if the trees will swamp the driveway.

And the plants will overgrow the walkways. (Yeah, the hose has been sitting there for over a week.)

The monster vines in back, the ones I severely cut back last year.

So, no wonder I didn't blog over the weekend; I've been fighting my way out of the jungle.


  1. Wow! Your yard really is a jungle! Good luck fighting your way around! LOL!

  2. Yea, but I looks like alot of fun for the critters! BOL Be careful out there!



  3. Hey, Alanis and Miro - get those toofers workin' and prune some greenery for your mom!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  4. Oh my gosh, I know just what you mean, I can practically watch things growing. I'm afraid to see the backyard at the City House...wait, maybe I won't even be able to see it..ugh. xo

  5. Tis the season Huh?

    We have all kinds of unwanted greenery too. It needs almost 24 hour attention.

    But I love the beautiful red tree. Just so lovely.


  6. That sure is hard work!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  7. Holy smokes, that *does* look like a jungle! Everything here is growing like crazy, too. :(
