The city has been telling us they are going to resurface our street, and replace the straight part of the curb. Today, a couple guys went down, spraying paint here and there, where work needs to be done in the street, and where the work will be started and stopped at the curbs. They told me the work will be started Friday.
This is the sidewalk that leads to the house.
They aren't going as far as I thought along the curb, and I took out some plants I wouldn't have needed to. The arrows point to where they are stopping.
I will need take out plants 18 inches from the curb in this bed. I didn't take these geraniums earlier, because they are so spready, and I have some by the tree. Now, I need to figure out what I'm going to do with them. I'll probably find a spot across the street for them, too.
I tried to leave parts of the geraniums I moved out of here. I like the orange portulaca in here as well as the geraniums, so I'm glad I don't have to dig them out after all, and maybe I'll see if they reseed next year, and not worry about putting the geraniums back.
They liked their move to my garden across the street.
If anyone knows how to center a header photo in Minima Stretch or in That a Way, (I think that's what this one is) please let me know. I got so tired of my header photo not being centered, that I changed my template last night. This morning, Larry thought space was wasted on that template, and it was harder to read, so I decided I didn't want that one. Since then, I've changed it several times. I did a search for how to center the header photo, and saw the answers to others' questions, and then saw that they had trouble with the directions they were given. I have changed things in html before, by following someone's directions, but I don't want to unless I know it's going to work.
(I figured out I can put the title by itself, then add a photo separately, and it is centered! Thanks, Mia, for suggesting the test blog. I may yet do that sometime when I'm ready for another change.)
