As I walk around the yard thinking about what has worked and what hasn’t, I have lots of ideas on what I want to do. It is so exciting that I now have a sunny front yard to landscape. The irises and juncuses (junci?) will have to be moved because they will never survive the full sun and scorching heat of the now avocado-free zone, and a new tree will take years before it casts much shade. The parkway is doing great, though I will be removing many of the deergrasses that crowd the strip and spill over into the street and sidewalk. If it doesn’t fit without pruning, it should be moved. These will be dug out and divided. They will be replanted in the front and back yards, potted up for next year’s plant sale, and shared with friends.
The nature park anniversary celebration is over. Yay! The plant sale is over. Yay! And the weather is perfect for gardening, cool and overcast. YAY!
