Today I spent some time in the beautiful sunshine in my front yard. It had promised to be a rainy cool day and I was thrilled to see how wrong the weatherman was.
My front yard has been overgrown since I moved into our paradise, and today was the day that I had to tackle it. What a great feeling working in the fertile loamy soil. I didn’t realize how much I had missed the smell of the earth and the sense of accomplishment at seeing the freshly turned ‘dirt’.
I call it ‘goatsfoot’, but I know there is another name for it. It is a very fast growing plant and in its place I could like it, but not in my front garden.
My little friend here thinks differently. I call him Mowgli and he watched me while I dug and cleared and moved the wall stones around. He stayed at a distance for a while and finally turned his back to me and chose to hide for a bit.
At the end of the day he came out and surveyed ‘His Place.’
So is it My Place or His Place? I promise to replace the plants with some grass.
