If a Google search landed you here and you were expecting a post about music… my apologies, and I hope you like yourself some flora and fauna.
I have three plant updates to share today, two successes and a failure. Let’s get started with the failure because like my buddy George Costanza says, always end on a high note!
We have several built in flower beds throughout or side yard and they are very overcrowded with spreading filler plants so I thought I’d split them up and move some into our dirt pit of a yard. Unfortunately it looks like our dirt pit is a dirt pit for a reason:
I have no idea what happened or how things turned ugly so quickly, but I do know that spot is probably destined for a raised flower bed at some point. I’m still clinging to hope that just one little plant will survive- all I need is one and it will multiply on it’s own! Darwinism!
But on to the good news:
There’s all sorts of bulbs and new arms coming off this bad boy, and I hope in a few years it takes up this whole section of the bed. I’ve actually decided to extend this bed from the stairs to the end of the house over this summer and next so the front of the house has more curb appeal and less grass to mow. I’ve got another transplant a little ways over to the right that should grow into a nice bush and more of these yellow spreaders growing from seed in a pot (see them on the bottom step?). I also have more then enough rocks to extend the border- my yard is full of rocks.
And speaking of the yard, these little daisies have popped up to join us by the patio table:
This daisy transplant is also from my coworker and has several new arms sprouting, hopefully it’ll crawl around our retaining wall as time goes on.
