It's been fun to replace weedy things with desirable native plants, ones that restore some mountain habitat to an old urban neighborhood (and the formerly weedy woodland ravine behind the house). This has my gardening companion's major gardening focus (and a welcome break for him). I appreciate the results!
A flame azalea and a couple of Eastern hemlocks were additions to the "blue house side"-- along with a number of other things.
