Sightings wonderful and not

The sun came out this afternoon so I wandered around a bit in our Wildscape, mostly in The Meadow. Yes, I spotted LOTS of bluebonnet seedlings! So exciting! I'm so hoping we can get them really established. From the looks of what I found, we're on our way!

Alas, I also been finding lots of  wax ligustrum seedlings. 
Major YUK! Actually, this is the first year I've found as many as I have. They seem to be extra prolific. I found some Malta star thistle seedlings along the Meadow's edge but not many.I think we've got those fairly under control now.

I would say you are well on your way to having bluebonnets for the rest of your life. I have those wretched thistles too and although we pulled them out last year I see them coming up again this year. I just don't have the time to do it again this year. What did you do to rid yourself of them?

Malta star thistle....yuck. I've been hand pulling the seedlings. I can recognize them as soon as they sprout! Since I kept on top of them last year, I don't see too many this year. Yet. There's a patch across the street so I know I'll always be yanking them.
