Now that fall is here I wonder how many of you are undertaking new projects. I am constantly doing this, despite having about a million things already on the go. It's like a disease :).
Here is the latest. Tonight I stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few things, and lo and behold, plants were on sale. They had a whole table of creeping sedums for a dollar each... I couldn't resist and bought 13. They are all really different and interesting to look at. I've been ruminating on it all evening, and once the baby was asleep I went outside to examine the area right in front of my house. We have a scrubby area that is 30 year old crushed rock right before the front porch. It probably once functioned as a sort of patio, but now it looks like a dandelion garden... anyway, my plan is to eventually turn it into a real patio. I'm actually thinking about pouring my own cement flagstones - I saw a woman do this once and it turned out beautiful. I would love to just purchase flagstones, but they are SO pricey. Anyway, I digress. Next to my future patio I am now going to build a sedum garden. I'm envisioning something that looks like a quilt of sedum groundcovers that lines the patio and connects it to the garden. The space is pretty big, so I hope it won't be weird. What do you all think? Has anyone ever created a big sedum garden? For that matter, has anyone ever poured their own patio?
What projects do you all have in the works? I would love to hear about all of your plans and ideas! And, if anyone has pics to go along with their ideas, all the better!
