New Wildflower Bed!

Steve's been incredibly busy preparing this new wildflower bed. Poison ivy, grape vine, roadside trash and cobble-size stones ruled this zone so it took a lot of work to get it to the planting stage.

He's still got a smile on his face, but this spot might have made even Steve feel a little kicked in the butt.

Jennifer's Grandpa Vorndran's tiller made the whole project possible. What a work horse. We like to think that Grandpa is looking down on us and giving a nod of approval.

There's still lots of roots, trash and stone to clean up, but we are almost there!


What's to come? Lots of prairie plants including a large planting of broad-leaved coneflower, butterflyweed and ironweed. It's going to look fabulous!


  1. WOW that is going to be spectacular!! I'm drooling over Grandpa's tiller,,,it looks like a great machine.

  2. It's going to be gorgeous!! I can just see it! We have a ton of flowers at the new farm, and some one really thought them through when the planted because we've been in blooms (albeit different ones!) since early April. Loving it! Your place is looking wonderful!
