I continued with some garden clean up today.
After weeding our front lawn well, I mowed it for the last time this year. The yellow blooming plant in the photo below has been growing in our lawn all year. It is spreading fairly well. I've mowed it through the summer and it just plugs along and blooms when it gets the chance.
I believe the plant is a toadflax or often known as wild snapdragon.I have some growing in my side garden too.
I plan on leaving it in the lawn. Eventually, the lawn will be replaced with more interesting plantings. Perhaps the toadflax will help lead me to making a plan.
I did some more watering and planted some crocus and some allium bulbs near our front sidewalk.
I tried my best not to disturb our front garden spider. He/she has been hanging out between some euonymous bushes for over a month. Some days it has a grasshopper in the web. It is as big as you think it is. I got as close as I dared with my camera to try and get a life sized photo.
It was a warm day again today. Hoping to get more garden clean up done tomorrow.
