Central Texas is known for the graceful, shade providing canopies of Live Oaks that pepper our landscape and we're fortunate to have several on our property.
Sometimes, though, truth be told, I'm not always grateful.
A friend visiting my garden recently commented that I don't have any oak sprouts...not like she does, she said. This post is for you, Pam.
This weekend, I'm going to let these little suckers live. I won't pull them. I'm going to embrace them. Love them for their instinct and tenacity to survive and reproduce. They are a marvel, really.
But come Monday, they are outta here!
*Oak sprouts should be pulled or carefully dug up as chemical applications have the potential to damage the parent trees.
