This is some of what I blogged about my current project of cleaning up my garden slope that is covered in Ivy. English Ivy can be very invasive and the time had come to corral it . More importantly , since the area was covered with cedar tree seedlings and an invasive plant called Wild Perennial Sweet Pea I decided to remove the surface of the ivy and the other offending plants and then allow fresh ivy to once again cover the slope. See that little purple spot in the photo above ? That is the purple (no fragrance) wild sweet pea flower that have been spreading their long tentacles all over the ivy.
This is what the slope looks like now . I'm getting there . The only thing that I still have to remove is what is left in the ditch . I have left some Ice Plant in one area and also some Vinca Minor as well as a few other plants .
This is looking down from the pathway . The English Ivy is starting to come back nicely !
When I say the Wild Sweet Pea is invasive, let me show you how fast it can grow . The next three photos of different areas show the growth since I cut them just a few days ago . I plan to take more aggressive measures wherever I see signs of the invasive Wild Sweet Pea .
It will be so nice to have this project completed.
Other progress is happening with the Patio Furniture . I have completed painting the large table and four chairs . And, I am so pleased with the nice attractive outcome .
It has been a relatively easy project and when the paint has cured for a day or so I will take another photo when it is all set up ! HooRay! Since I have the paint , I think I will continue and paint the small table and the two rocker chairs.
I hope you had a good weekend and the week to come will be enjoyable.
