Now that I'm home from my recent trips, I made some headway in the yard. I drove out to Geo Growers yesterday and got some dirt. Will and I filled up 8 big bags and put them in the trunk, turning my Honda Civic into a low rider. When I got home I connected two separate beds and planted the newly purchased mountain laurel in a sunny spot. One of my irises is about to bloom, the salvia is already blooming and the winecups have buds. Last fall I tossed a sizable bag of wildflower seeds in the 7 ft or so behind the fence. No sign of life from them yet but I have high hopes. I wish every day was gardening day.
Zoom out, zoom out and I am a tiny dot on the planet. Zoom in, zoom in and I am a human, living in Kingsbury, TX, trying to make the world a little better by doing my part for the environment and the animals that share my space on the planet - that space? 2.5 acres of land in Guadalupe County. Me? A technical writer in my day job; a TX Master Naturalist by nature; a pet lover; nature lover; invasive species stalker. Julia (AKA jewel)
