I know some people love certain flowers and plants that others consider invasive. An example is I have a lot of violets that I consider weeds and want gone and some people love them to the point of buying them to plant. I like lily of the valley, but it is taking over my entire side yard.
I'm going to try moving them once the blooms are gone. Has anyone tried moving them?

I have an old dead tree. I know that this sounds stupid, but I am attached to the tree because it did when my dad died. As soon as my dad died, I mean within days, the leaves all turned brown and have never grown back. I cannot afford to have it removed anyway. the man next door says that it will stand sturdy for many years before proposing a problem. SO... I planted bouganvilla on it. Dh and I go out every couple of weeks and coax the trailers around the tree. One day, it will be a big burst ofPurple/red. Most people see this plant as an annoyance, but I just love it, but it just must be kept under control. I will take a picture this week to post. I am hoping for it to be the highlight of my yard one day soon.

We're surrounded with Birch trees and Hemlocks. I don't know why anyone would want to go out and buy any of these trees to plant. Birches don't have a deep root system, so they're the first to blow over in a good wind storm. All Hemlocks do is attract mosquitos.

The previous owner planted mint in the front flower bed. I love the way it smells and use it for tea, but boy do I wish she had used a flower pot instead! Also, my neighbor was kind enough to give me some plants that they grow in her native Korea. She doesn't know what they are called however. They are pretty but they re-seed themselves. OH BOY do they reseed! I have pulled out so many already. I have a CARPET of green mint and those "korean" plants
