I spent some time doing just that this weekend.
I have decided that I am sick of that task and I am thinking of removing a good portion of my creeping phlox so I don't have to deal with it.
So in the afternoon I took a break from digging grass and went out and bought this:
Yup, I went out and bought some grass!
I think I will leave it in it's pot and put it in one of big deck containers. I cannot imagine having to dig unwanted grass out of my pretty blue fescue. I wonder if it will be perennial in my cold climate. It says it's good for 30 below zero, so it should be.
I also bought some fuzzy wuzzy Lamb's Ear. I have never grown Lamb's ear.
Hmmmm, I did not buy them to plant together, but after looking at this pic, I like the combination of the blue fescue with the lamb's ear in front. Anybody growing that combo?
In the back you see a red peony. It has two buds, so I can't wait to see the flower. If you have been reading this blog for long, you may remember that my white peonies took 15 years before they bloomed! I have no desire to wait that long for the red ones, so I thought the $15 price tag was worth it.
I also picked up a pot of Sunny Border Blue Speedwell (Veronica Spicata). I've tried it once before, but it died out. I love the blue color, so decided to give it one more chance.
I also went looking for the new Croc's, but I did not find them. The store I thought carried them, decided not to this year. Just my luck....
I stopped a second store to see if there was anything else that appealed to me. I found these:
I love them and they were marked way down -- about 1/4 the price of the crocs. To top that off, if you bought one pair of shoes, you got a second pair 1/2 off. I was in a big hurry and just grabbed these cute flip flops. They were marked $3 - closeout from $$19.99. I got them for $1.50!!
I guess it was my lucky day after all!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
