With a passion for gardening, we ordered a truck of that Leafgro that I wrote about in the prior post. We have a good-sized vegetable garden and I have to tend about seven various sized flower beds, the rest we sprinkle on our pathetic lawn which is really just an effort to control erosion.
Below is what half of 5 yards looks like. (Our garden helpers are weeks away, so much of this work we have to do ourselves....sigh.) ($200 and we will use it all.)
We are about 70% done. Since I have company next week, I want all of the chores out of the way so I can play.
This is where it goes:
I had to do lots of weeding, some perennial dividing, etc. prior to topping the beds with the humus and after several days I am DONE with this work. Right now, I just want an afternoon bath and a book!
But I do get a reward and some photos with which to play.
I have written before about this germander speedwell that snuck into a pot of something I was planting so many years ago and since it looks so lovely in the spring I have let it wander. It is a polite wanderer. It is also called Catseyes or bird's eye speedwell and we have the wild version roaming in our lawn. The wild version has fewer and paler flowers.
