#7 reminds me of smooth aster, the leaves are bluish like that and clasp the stem. I'll take a photo of mine for you to judge.

Finally getting back to this...

#1. I lost it. I haven't seen it in awhile, but then it's now tick season. It's bad out there. :P
#2. I've been pulling some, but need to do more.
#4. I first thought a sage, but somehow the leaves didn't match my books. I'll get more photos later.
#6. Still watching these things, and pulling a handful.
#7. Got a more recent picture...

Here's a #8.

It looks to be a tree, either poplar or cottonwood. I could be off though. If it is a poplar, I'll just yank it, but am tempted to transplant it if it is cottonwood. Only after looking into if it could be a problem for our prairie-to-be with all the seeds. Someone told me if I have cottonwood, I should keep it as it would be good for Oriole. But Orioles already nest here.

Not a Poplar.

I have one of those "#7's" coming up in my front yard. But, of course, the plant tag is long gone so I still can't say for sure what it is. It's something that I planted in my really sunny, dry area next to the driveway.

That's interesting... it's the same location here. The only time it gets really wet is when we have one of those gully washers after a heavy storm. But it dries quickly.

I know that I planted some Beardtongues (Penstemmon) out there. Maybe Large-flowered (P. grandiflorus)? I'll keep you posted if I figure out what it is.

Since the title is..........Too Many Plants

That is the conclusion I have came up with this Spring.
Been removing iris after iris, grape hyacinths and star of Bethlehem up the ying yang, daffodil upon daffodil and am finally about near the end of ripping out the rest of the excess. Will not let the morning glories nor the other spitters take root this year either. No more sorting between things for me. Now If I could only find someone who wants a free bush so I won't have to trim that one up yearly!

Making things easier for the future sure takes a lot out of a person.
Cleaned and filled both ponds today as well. Now THAT'S an area where I DO like to rest and feast my eyes upon!!!! Break time.
