My climbing hydrangea hasn't bloomed in over 8 years so I took it to Twitter. Hopefully with the help from #gardenchat I can get this shrub to bloom again.

Dandelions and Bees : Rethinking Weeds

Beautiful Spring early afternoon in my garden was I sit weeding some of my raised beds preparing them for the veggies to go in soon after frost date of May 15 I could hear a loud buzzing. About 3 feet from me a fuzzy bumble bee was going to town on the…

Weeds are just plants in the wrong place. Dandelion leaves are great for source of vitamin A and can treat liver and kidney ailments. You can also make a dandelion 'tea' and wine, or put the leaves on a salad.
