hado's folly

May, 2006

This is Memorial Day weekend when summer seems to have arrived. We did some planting at last and Mark started building the steps for the shed.

Mark started the steps with a platform.

Weeds or wildflowers? We don't know!

I've been reading about native plants and here I've planted some Joe Pye Weed, which is a native plant that should grow to be about 6' high with purple flowers that attract butterflies.

This plant is boxed in so we can tell the plant from the weeds. It's a ground cover plant - can't remember name.

Doing a little drawing with Max.

Mark's latest obsession - giant binoculars!
