progress

remember this?

after a few hours in the yard, we now have this:

now that the friendly weeds are gone,

i just have to decide what to put in their place... flowers, huh? but what kind? any suggestions?

i have never liked dirt so much.

Beautiful! Good job! Big pat on your back. As for flower suggestions, is this area generally sunny, partially-sunny, or downright shady?

Also, do you get frost?

ok, so the space gets partial sun. we don't really get frost, but we do get extreme heat...like 100's+ in the summer, for months at a time...

any ideas?!?

Vinca is a great bright green waxy leaf ground cover that gets cute purple flowers. You would like it, and it would like living in that spot between the house and garage. Probably 1 flat would fill in both sides of the flower beds.

Partial sun, drought-resistant...

Penstemon, fox gloves, scabiosa, bacopa, lamb's ears,...

I would also ask your local nursery. Hope that helps!
