Thought I’d make a fast post with some before and after pictures. The deck is gone, gone, gone. Interestingly I had a hard time finding pictures taken across the deck so it’s not a great before/after. As a reference point, you can see the deergrass (Muhlenbergia rigens) in the front, left of both pictures.
And now, here’s a very sad before/after picture. I transplanted on November 8th some Eleanor monkeyflower (Mimulus ‘Eleanor’) that I had nurtured from cuttings I did in February 2009.
