New picture of Wally. He's so big my husband can't really control him to get his weight but he's getting big.

Started working on making a new garden bed. Instead of just flowers I am going to add herbs and maybe some low growing veggies. I have some dandelion plants in the yard so I can dig them out and put them in the garden for the bees. I'm thinking about making it a certified wildlife habitat.

With the aid of a Microscope; you might be surprised at ”what a wildlife habitat it all-ready is!
Oh yes I have found plenty of little critters under the soil. I read that it has to have a water source and plenty of leaves and twigs and also the plants for a food source. Then it's 20$ and done

These are of the flower bed I am working on and as you can see it's full of rocks. It doesn't help that Wally decided to dig in it.

AKRoberts,

you might be amazed by the rocks left behind when ice dams in the mountains break and ..

. glacial till rushes down in a flood. It isn't, in every way, a bad thing to happen on the aftermath and have a garden there.

;) Steve

You could also make a dandelion salad and dandelion flower tea! (Assuming the dandies in your yard haven't been sprayed.)

I avoid the chemicals as much as possible. The dandelions are chemical free and they would make my flower bed so pretty. I love seeing them bloom in early Spring. I also have a lot of white iris',both tall and short, that might fit in with what I want to do. I might dig up some of the lilies.
