I actually felt nervous digging this in, wondering if neighbors will be offended, what someone might say, if it will be vandalized for what it says or just because it's there. But I had to say something. I have this learning lab out back that no one sees. I had to do something. What do you think?
I've found, and assumed, that those living in new subdivisions like mine are much more militant about what landscapes should look like -- namely, lawn, lawn, lawn, and a few super bland foundation plants so close to the house wall you're not sure if they're painted on or not. Go into town, in older neighborhoods, and there's more variety. Of course, that lack of uniformity means someone might have a moldy couch out front, an RV that never moves, or plastic flamingos in various colors.
I planted the sign with aromatic aster, rudbeckia hirta, stiff goldenrod, and blue sage. I'd like to find some sideoats grama grass (for some reason my seeds never germinated this year).
We'll see. Go bold or go cold.
