Streetscape Garden - The Good, the Bad, and the Pretty
The bulbs that I worked so hard to plant in the fall are blooming now, a perfect lesson on delayed gratification.
Since my bf and I put the new garden in next to the street we have had a whole range of reactions, most people love it - several neighbors have come out to complement it and we recently got a lovely handwritten thank you note from someone telling us how much she enjoys seeing our garden every day on her commute. But there are always negative nellies out there, and my daily chore of picking up litter now includes cleaning up after people who decide to knock the heads off of my daffodils. Fortunately I planted enough of them that loosing some isn't impacting the overall effect too much, and I count myself lucky that nothing worse has happened.
Every day when I leave and return home the bright yellow daffodils make me happy, it's like they are trumpeting 'spring is here!' to the world.
