Yesterday I painted my front flowerbed, which was trickier than I thought. The groundcover Sedum is in full bloom right now and it is super bright yellow. And many of my Hen and Chicks are about to flower–they are those tall weird cactus looking plants. Lately I sit at this spot a lot to watch and photograph the bees, who are all over the Sedum and the tall blueish purple Speedwell plant, and yesterday while painting by the front walk I got to chat with a few neighbors as they walked by. Putting a patio and flowerbeds in my front yard has been the best thing for getting to know my neighbors.
