well all of the rain we've gotten lately has really perked things up. when i got to our garden today, i found that it has been TAKEN OVER by mushrooms. i dug up a ton while i was planting pansies...
a guy walked through the garden and said "HEY! don't eat the mushrooms!" and then he just kept walking. so that was interesting. i don't TYPICALLY eat mysterious fungi though.
here are some of the pansies i planted today...they look blurry because it was so windy
my most exciting achievement today was integrating a mosaic sculptural element to the lilac/pansy bed. i used all of the tile and broken glass that i gathered and placed them strategically around the trees and plants. i also think that the mosaic will double as a nice weed guard.
this is my favorite part of the mosaic...a tree surrounded by glass pieces
and this is me watering my trees and plants
so to summarize...the garden is looking perky after all the rain, we have a lot of mushrooms and apparently should NOT eat them, i planted pansies, and mosaic-ed the bed. i think it looks pretty.
