a vacation of sorts

amazon jungle? malaysian rainforest? no, just the tangle of aged bittersweet on the other side of the fence behind my mother’s place.

How do you kill that stuff, anyway? It's overtaking the corner of our house, and has made it to the top of our stately pines. It loves to be hacked off at the ground - makes it thrive with a vengeance the next year!

garden club ladies tell me to use roundup to kill bittersweet. it grows in the old compost pile - but i just keep cutting it down. and it keeps returning but hasn't gotten really out of control - yet!
