Went on a pic taking spree yesterday afternoon.

#1 This is an annual I bought at wally world, I think. All the info I got was annual, full sun!

[Linked Image]

#2 I can't get RID of these things. I've been calling them green briars, but they kinda look like blackberries to me. They pop up everywhere I don't want them, are on runners. They're nearly impossible to defeat. They have thorns.

[Linked Image]

#3 This is a tree we cut down but it sent out new branches from the stump. It's growing too close to the front steps and has to go no matter what it is, but if it's nice I might try rooting a branch wink

#4. Okay, Im hoping this isn't purslane again, and is actually the mexican petunia seedlings. Couldn't find it on theseedsite.

Think that's all for today! Thanks wink

woohoo! May be mex petunias finally wink that would be great...but I'll try not to get my hopes up too high yet!

Ah begonia - okay, thanks! smile I figured it was something pretty common because I've seen it before, just never knew what to call it. Guess they didn't have the name on the tag cuz they figure everyone knows what it is (except me :p laugh )

#2 & #3 are kinda hard ones, I know...not the greatest pics either. I almost want to let #2 flower so I can see what it is - may as well, it's not like I'm defeating them by cutting them down when they're short (can't even pull em - they just break at the taproot and send up a bunch more!) <sigh>

Thanks! wink

#2 looks like a 'bramble'; blackberry or multiflora rose.

#3 looks like an elm tree.
