Here is some more of that free work. I am almost finished with this bed and now I am starting one about a 1/2 mile on the other end. I got all these plants free out of yards. I think I found something on those yacca....pill bugs eat the base of the leaves and they die back. I was stripping them to plant.

Mowing these ponds and greenbelt was fun. This is what happens after 10 months of no rain followed by 3 months of constant rain. It was cool, no dust and the ground was soft so a smooth ride. And the best part nobody cares what it looks like. I had fun sliding around on this slick weeds. You know how you go fast when you pull back on the stick well I was going so fast some times that it was scary. Life little joys.

I'm not sure what that wild flower is in your shot but it looks good. It may be in the Rubeckia family. Probably the coolest native flower we have here is the Four Nerve Daisy. The thing flowers year round when planted in an irrigated landscape. You only find the Four Nerve in rocky areas where other invasive weeds can't easily grow .

That flower was pretty unique in that it was sitting by itself and I have never seen one like it.....boy you know your plants I am impressed.

One of the big companies dropped off a trailer load of vrides to have serviced. I thought the inside was kinda interesting. We are having a little retro on our closed one and the dam welders are charging us a fortune.. Think this might be cheaper route.
