Butterfly Garden – milestone!

This evening I got the first plants into the to-be butterfly garden. After finding out how much it will cost to have bulk top soil added to the space, I realized that I may have to really go piece by piece. So, I planted 3 coreopsis and raised the bed with 3 bags of topsoil. Add mulch, and voila!

ok, looks pretty puny when I see the overview.

No matter, it’ll get there :)

Butterfly Garden (to be)

Getting started on the future Butterfly Garden. So far, we’ve tilled the space. Turns out the ground is such hard clay, that we will need to have some top soil added. When I called to price that, my jaw hit the floor. The space is approximately 20′ by 70′, and that is a lot of top soil. I’ll have to do it in thirds. But that’s ok, it’ll get there :)  A big thank you goes to our very good friend, Jon, for parting with his heavy-duty tiller. It got the job done!
