Happy Earth Day!

Things are waking up in the northeast.

These guys are starting to eat again. Still a little shy; but by the end of last summer they were eating out of my hand. Little Goldy is the most social and brave so far.

This is Stinging Nettle.

It started to grow in the perennial garden last summer. I got into it by accident. It's noxious to the skin. Thinking it was something else this past weekend, I went to yank it out and sadly remembered what it was. I did pull it out, and here it is back 3 days later. Not sure how to completely get rid of it without killing all the other stuff off.... It has a shallow, invasive route system. It will grow tall and has microscopic razors on the leaves.
