The hell strip, looking heavenly
Each morning and afternoon I ride my bike past the hell strip in our front yard on my way to work. ("The hell strip" is the name some people give that weird little stretch of nothing between the sidewalk and the street...) This past spring I got busy and finished it, putting in some gravel, Mexican feather grass, chamisa, and blackfoot daisy. Everything really took off once we started to get some rain.
I think it is looking especially lovely this week. It makes me smile every time I see it. These photos don't really do it justice.
