It was almost 70º here today so I ran out after work and grabbed a bag of fertilizer.  I threw it down on the front yard and then watered.  That grass was drrrrrryyyyyy!

plants4This guy came back from last year….growing in the only clump of grass in the front yard.  Once it dies it’ll get mowed down and I’ll forget about it until next Spring.  I love surprises!

plants7I also MOWED today!  While I’m grateful for this stretch of grass, it’s the area of my yard that I have spent the absolute least amount of time on….and it’s by far the nicest.  Sigh.

That was an hour ago and it still hasn’t rained….
