The "hill" out back was showing signs of erosion so after planning several scenarios, I ended up buying day lilies for $3 each. Somehow I ended up planting 45 plants on the hill along with digging a drainage ditch to fill with stone. With the day lilies I planted Sedum Autumn Joy, Yellow Coreopsis, Dwarf Coreopsis, Blue Delphinium, Pink Coneflower (Echinacea), Blue Fescue, Russian Sage, and one other that I can't remember the name of.
We also had some fun with little critters this summer. I found raccoon prints in the backyard and we saw bear prints while picking peaches on the mountain! I know it may seem ridiculous to be excited about such things, but I started out a CityGirl, remember?
It's back to work to my proper job in the morning. That doesn't mean the work at home stops, just that it slows down.
