Going Native

We took a class on native landscaping at Theodore Payne.

Our final project was to create a master plan for our entire garden.  Rob is going to do the bulk of the big stuff on his hiatus, but we did get started on the front yard.

To the left, is a pitcher sage.  It's supposed to be remarkably fragrant.

At the bottom is a western redbud.  It'll grow to be about 20 feet tall and is one of the most beautiful native trees I've seen.  Its leaves are getting a bit rusty, so I hope it's not going to crap out on use like the sycamore did last summer.
