Technically this covers the last week of June too, but who's counting...



Back in May, I bought a catnip plant. It was subsquently transplanted into a 10" pot and left alone for a few months. This was by the end of June, and after having multiple cuttings taken from it, as well as being rubbed against several times and munched on by Aries. It had quadrupled in size.



This is that same plant as of today. It is now in a 12" pot and it has doubled in size again. Yeah.



The driveway was regraded and recycled asphalt was put down. This neccesitated repairs to the strawberry bed and the iris bed on the side, as those bricks are not mortered together (yet). The front bed along the front of the driveway also has several cracks were the small bulldozer hit it. *sigh* When I pull the irises from it, to replace the dirt, I'll have to see about potentially repairing it.

I had to thoroughly wet the driveway down while watering the front gardens before I could go smooth out the ridges and such left from the tires. Once it all compacts down, it'll be a lot smoother and weeds won't grow in it, so that's a bonus, I guess. Although, they did leave about a foot wide stretch along the strawberry bed that's bare gravel and dirt. Hrm.
