Yippee! I took lots of sinus medicine and nose spray then raced outside to do a little mulching. I managed to the work the beds that border the front brick stair walkway. It was in pretty good condition and quite moist which is surprising since we are in a drought and the rain has been sparse. I spread out 3 bags of Earthgro mulch from Home Depot. It took a little over an hour. I found a fire ant bed and treated it with amdro and some other poison. These little fellas have been fierce at our house this year. I believe they have completely covered the whole yard. They probably are just moving their homes around when I bother them. Oh well, winter is around the corner (cross my fingers) and they will go deep under the ground. The allergies kicked in again so I hit the shower.
Suggestion on where to get wildflower seeds.... there is a place outside of Fredericksburg, Texas, called Wildseed Farms, and they have an awesome seed collection. If you can't make it down there for a visit you can always visit their website www.wildseedfarms.com they are reasonable and their seeds always germinate well for me. It is a good idea to get them planted in Texas sometime in October or early November. However, last year I put them out in late February and still got a nice show.
