Not all flowers are welcome, of course. This is garlic mustard:

This morning I worked for a while across the path from Beechwood, trying to clear out some of the garlic mustard in the sumacs there. It's looking good as long as you don't raise your eyes and look beyond the immediate area to see the advancing horde:
