These are the stories of a gardener and her adventures in and sometimes out of her eclectic and eccentric garden in a suburb of Houston, Texas.

Three for Thursday: The Corner Bed
Before: view looking east
Before: looking west
After: Looking south/southeast
I've spent a good number of hours in this area the last 10 days or so, pulling out manky zinnias and cosmos, yanking weeds, laying newspaper and spreading compost. I also laid a dozen pieces of flagstone, hoping it would be enough that I could make my way through the bed without compacting the soil. I need more flagstone: my legs are short. I'd wish for longer legs in my next life but I suspect I'd come back as a giraffe.
