Do you remember my post about that patch of ground I cleared out by the end of our driveway? You know, the one with the 4 foot tall weeds and the big green transformer box? Here — let me remind you:
If you recall I left those two little rocks there because the 4 year old next door explained that they were very fragile and had to be handled very gently. I am certain he got the rock message mixed up somehow, but I wasn’t about to be the one to correct him and then have to explain about the broken windows to his parents.
Well, when D wasn’t looking I gently heaved those two rocks into the middle of the vacant lot next door. Then I got the shovel, the hose, a few bazillion dollars worth of flora, and I created this:
Now every day is a life and death struggle between the slugs and I. I did not plant these beautiful flowers so they could have fresh salad. I bought some Sluggo and it seems to be working. There are about 8 daisies hidden among this splendor that were reduced to stubs, but I see they are rallying. I hope that means they will bloom before the season ends.
