The "Meadow"

The previous owner let a rocky corner of our yard go to "meadow". The whole area has been covered in weeds. The first year we lived here, we had a huge, leaning box elder cut down. We managed to eradicate the jewel weed, only for it to be replaced by more creeping jenny, forget-me-nots and dandelions. The whole area is a mess. A few weeks ago, Colin sprayed the whole area with Round-up. Today we went to our favorite nursery (Cider Hill Gardens) and bought some hostas and hellebores. Yes, we have a five week old baby, but we see this as a long term project.
