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.

Holy weeds batman!! Nice pics, looks like it would be fun. Glad to hear you guys got

the rain.
 
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 .

How many propane mowers do you run?
We have three converted.......and I was told yesterday that we can get $5000 to convert 5 more as long as they have less than 300 hours on them.
So since we don't have any that fit that standard I think we are going to buy a new V-ride and put propane on it. We need to get our trucks converted. Oh and price of propane dropped to $2.20 in our area.

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.
