"You 'BECOME' the horse said to the rabbit. 'It doesn't happen all at once. It takes a very long time. Generally by the time you are REAL most of your hair has been loved off and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But those things don't matter, because you are real, you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.' " >>> The Velvateen Rabbit

My Random Garden
Awhile back I posted a picture of this stump. It was what was left of a huge tree
This picture is of it last summer, the pretty one in the center. Our May snow storm took one whole side of the tree down. Anyway, I decided instead of trying to dig all the roots out or paying to have them grubbed out, I would plant some ground cover around the roots. One thing led to another and now I have my Random Garden that is taking on a life of its own. I will take a picture this week and update this, as I have several things blooming and bought a couple Russian Sage plants that were on sale to give it some more life. Next spring plan to plant that bank in creeping phlox. Hubby keeps wanting to help but I think I have made it pretty clear that this is MY spot to play with and everyone else is to stay out! I think he got the message. We have very different ideas on gardening so I pretty much leave him alone to do what he wants with the tomato plants and watering the shrubs and such.
