When a flower bed is mostly overgrown weeds and its primary activity is filtering trash out of the wind, something must be done. I wasn't sure and didn't want to do anything rash, so I thought about it for a couple of years. In honor of Earth Day, this afternoon I finished cleaning it up! Then prepped the soil and scattered grass seed. Then watered. I can't take credit for adding the necessary sunshine, that was already happening. If I tend the area properly that ratty corner of the back yard will soon be lawn once more. Reid is delighted. As far as he's concerned, the more lawn to mow, the better. I've just got to be the best Mom on the block.
