Julie has been tidying up the front yard a bit as well.
As you may recall, if you have been reading through the whole
narrative of the naturalization process, the goal was to keep the
front a little bit less wild than the back, in order to blend into
the neighborhood somewhat.
This photo shows where she has planted various herbs intermixed
with marigolds. The marigolds are partly for colour, but they also
help protect the herbs from rabbits etc.
