The photos of the double decker roof garden in New York have made me want to put some yellow flowers in the garden so I just ordered some Coreopsis "Sunshine Superman" seeds.
I got seeds because they are cheap and because the plants will be better adapted to the climate here. (Most plants are grown in nurseries in warm places and suffer quite a shock when they are moved north.) But mostly, because I am feeling a bit overwhelmed, it's getting cold and don't think I will get much more planted this year.
I guess our yard will continue to look crappy for a few more years until it fills in.
Steven better get tenure.
