Richard's Poor Almanac by Richard Thompson for May 28, 2019
Your Spring Weeding Guide Die die Die Die Non-Euclidean creeper. Hard to remove. Ignores the geometry of the space time continuum common to most yards. False tea rose. Looks & smells exactly like the lovely tea rose. But it's a weed! Soon your yard will be covered in it! Root it out! Tear it up! Kill it! Bamzu. Combines the robust unstoppability of kudzu with the hearty immorality of bamboo. It also attracts zebra mussels. Sell your house and get a condo. Dilatory bulbvine. Also known as your left over Christmas lights. Take them down already, it's Easter for crying out loud.

I’ve got Sweet Autumn Clematis vines right by the porch entrance. We let it grow until it flowers & then cut it to the ground. It always comes back. Right now we’re a little late with that & if we don’t cut it back now we’ll have to wait out the back door! It’s taking over!!!!!!!

Richard, Richard, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
—With gorgeous weeds and humor, too!
