Gardening Issues

Ok this weekend was not my best weekend. So what did I turn to, my garden. I re-arranged it about 5 times. It rained on and off so I wasn't able to take pics, because when it wasn't raining I was either up to my elbows in dirt or at the gardenfest.
But I am at a loss. Half of the things popping up I don't know what the heck they are. Are they weeds? Are they plants? Should I just let them all bloom? I dunno. Unless it's ragweed, burning nettle, dandelions, or thistles, man I'm stumped.
Next weekend hopefully it won't rain and dear hubby and I can take on the start of the window paint stripping project. That means these monstrous rose bushes I have on south side of the house will have to be trimmed way back. That should be fun.

Its tough to sit and do nothing but the best advice I was given about this same situation: If you are not great at plant ID, let everything go for one year. As the plants grow and change you'll see what you have. Unfortunately, in our case, all that came up were verigated hostas. Hopefully you will have better luck!

Yea...I think I'm going to have to do that! I just don't know enough yet............
Though I was pretty proud I figured out the Virginia Waterleaf....that plant has had me stumped for 2 months!
