And we have a new driveway! A circle with new gravel and a good system for dealing with the roof runoff that used to flow down the driveway into the road. The gravel has a great deal of dust mixed in, which i know is to make a more compact-able surface. I'm pleased.
I realized we have no explicit plans of how to landscape the circle. They retained a small copse of trees to which i will add a sassafras my sister has for me. The circle is close to a black walnut, so certain plantings are right out. The daffs i dug up Wednesday night by lamp light (along with a peony) can go out there though. (The peony cannot.) I'm leaning towards a June berry (Amelanchier lamarckii) and away from a native plum. I suppose it would be the best place to ever plant a pecan. (Would need to crowd two in there for nuts.) 'Course that would then compete with the black walnut. (It would be at the distance recommended for growing walnut for timber.)
I had a 5 am presentation to attend, which i did. I didn't start work until later, but i seem to have zero motivation. It's a rainy day.... Well, i've had poor motivation all week.
