Wow! That's a really cool picture Dallas. I wish I was there. It's very relaxing.

Dallas, that's a beautiful scene.  Eerie but beautiful.  I could stand there and just stare, for hours.  

On the scented-lawn issue, I gave up on a garden bed that was invaded by grasses and mowed it to start over.  We had garlic and big bunches of garlic chives at the edges, both of which I have elsewhere as well.  My partner came home and commented about the scented lawn.  I let mint grow through the grass, and pull out bunches of mint from the borders and throw them on the lawn before mowing, to get a minty fresh lawn.

Having looked up wild onions now - the ones we had may have been garlic. It seems that wild onions are thin flat leaves and garlic the round tubular ones like those in our Ohio lawn.

The wild onions we had were thin leaved - but were tougher than chives - the leaves also seem to have ridges running the length to the tip. they still smelled great when mowed (& were tasty too).

If you are on facebook, I recommend this page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Occupy-Gardening/351746341503313

they have added many great hints and tricks.

Like that garden border and may use it as a sidewalk border.

Comment by Annie Thomas on May 16, 2012 at 8:26am

I love the pallet idea!  Here's a link to a garden challenge my husband and I won a few years ago. It was a fun process, though a lot of hard work.  There is a second photo of the outdoor shower area that you can see if you find the little "next" button below the picture of the beds.

(My apologies if I've already shared this.  A friend just asked for the link and it seems fitting here with the recently shared ideas.)
