Sweat your Gr-ass off Saturday

Picture this-a hot, humid, sunny Saturday afternoon in Chucktown.  A perfect day to say put your boat in the water or head down to the beach and stay cool.  Or what about spending four hours digging up a walk way, tilling the ground, lifting 12 bags of soil and planting 10 sweetgrass plants.  What would you pick?   Planting sweetgrass?  Well you should have joined us!!

We lined our sidewalk today leading to the palm trees and it turned out great.  I can't wait to see these puppies bloom purple in the fall.  Can't freakin' wait...We still need to add some landscape lights, but eventually this lil project will be done.

They look little now but they grow fast.
 Here's a look at how they look lining the sidewalk at Kiawah when they bloom:

I love that you've lined the walk way, that is so pretty! Can't wait to see them all "grown up" too, I love the purple tips.

And I'll say this again, I'm so jealous of you living in the South. I can't wait to start gardening but that won't happen any time soon with all the rain we've been getting.
