« Teddy Roosevelt was right... | Main | Is it okay to be happy? »



I don't plan either. I go by feel too. I don't know that I could use a plan as I don't visualize very well. I have been admiring how beautifully some of the beds are right now. So many leaf colors setting each other off. I confess that I didn't consider the leaf color, shape or texture, I just liked the plant.

I am, however, pretty picky about weeds. A false ecosystem like we have living on a mountain and running irrigation on our lot means native plants (aka holy cow weeds!) take over quickly.

I bought my first house when I was 26 and single because I wanted to grow something. I didn't know what or how, but it was totally in my blood.

P.S. I'm the only person that I am aware of in this neighborhood of approaching 1000 homes that has strawberries growing as a groundcover in the front yard. May as well be useful and tasty. Garden on!
