Good suggestion, Jack. All of the trees and shrubs I've planted so far are native to this area, that I've obtained from county native plant sales.

First plantings!

It's been a long hard road, but we finally moved in on July 29th. I've waited 'til the rains started (mid-September) to begin planting, and now, at least, here I go.

I'm a messy gardener, too -- I like those leaves and dried flowers! And I enjoy watching the birds digging through the leaves. I'm glad to see it's a good thing.

That's just what I've done. The front yard is what the landlord likes, but the back gets to keep its leaves around the leaves and bushes. It works.

I'm looking forward to seeing how your shale barren grows. I've always love the rugged, rocky areas and the plants that grow on or between rocks. I liked the last photo with the wildflower in focus.
