This was from three weeks ago. I should take an updated pic- the bushy 'weeds' in the xeriscape Thunderturf lawn have turned out to be Indian blankets and purple horsemint which is lovely.
I've had some lovely spring flowers including my self-seeding poppies and a gloriously large orange mallow bush.
And we added a puppy (Sasha, acting well behaved in this pic) to the menagerie of chickens, cats and kids. She keeps me walking in the neighborhood, and gets us outside often- which is great.
