I still have the area beyond the crepe myrtle to weed, but I'd say I'm more than halfway through with this section (which, of course, is just a miniscule fraction of what needs to be done).

Weeding in the border
I can never stay ahead of the weeds, but I did spend some time Friday, Saturday, and today working under the crepe myrtle (the tree that shed the deer-shaped bark). I gathered up the loose bark that had fallen as well as some that I pulled off or knocked out of the tree and burned it. I had some pine straw that had been sort of mounded since I raked it from the neighbor's yard last fall. I spread it over the area I had just weeded. It looks nice. You can see the wheelbarrow full of weeds. This was mostly stiltgrass (or a look alike) which comes up easily.
