When we took possession of our new house, the extensive paved areas around it all looked like this shot above. Weeding that was certainly on my list but way, way down as my priority is to get the house to a stage that we can move in to.

What's even better is that she's taken on the ongoing maintenance contract. Who needs Hire a Hubby when you can hire a daughter.
