my shoulders and arms ache,and I don’t think my feet will ever be clean.No matter how much I pumice….
And this is why….
The front yard renovation has started.With all the work Hillsborough County did,the new driveway,and the septic drain field replacement,the front was a mess!
Here’s the driveway with the new brick outline…
The first two landing areas are in…..
One section left to go….
The area between that section,and the road,will be planted with Love Grass(my new affair ).
with succulents and Sedums.
The large,and heavy, pieces of concrete I found while digging out the area for the new landing.They must be from when the house was built,back in the 70’s,as the County cleared that area out.Whatever,or whenever,they come from,they serve their new purpose perfectly.The planters are surrounded by Bulbine,as this area gets full sun,most of the day.
The large container in the center was planted with a Giant False Agave.and Sedum.
This area is a view towards the front of the house.The plantings are Giant Liriope,African Iris,Angel’s Tears,and Bulbine.
All were taken from divisions of plantings that were in the back gardens.
Still to be done:
-more maleluca mulch to be brought in.
-ground cover to be planted.
-the final third of the landing to be completed.
This week’s weather forecast calls for rain,so,hopefully,the gardens will be doing the happy dance.
Dinner,tonite,was Vegan.All from the veggie garden,except for the olives,goat cheese(no goats are being raised at TheGreatWall),Quinoa,and the croutons.
but I did make the croutons myself,
does that count?….
How was your gardening weekend?
Plans for the upcoming week?
