Looks Uncomfortable

I used to like the flower called faerie wand.

Not any more.  It has underground runners that have taken over almost 3/4 of my butterfly garden. Armed with my poacher’s spade, I attacked the unwanted patch last night.

The white of the spider’s egg sac caught my attention.

That sure looks like an uncomfortable way to spend the day.

The spiderlings will hatch and remain in the cocoon until they are able to run about.

    WOW it looks like a very beautiful flower :-(,I know I understand that some of the plants take over the space, but any way to control the excessive growing?


    • It slowly got out of hand. The last 2-3 years haven’t been the best for gardening, and it got out of control practically overnight. I’m sure with all the runners it has that I won’t be able to get it all. I look out the window and there’s the groundhog. It’s a shame it won’t eat it.
