fast growing / fast reading

See the land, her Easter keeping,
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices...
I'm so happy to see my ajuga plants coming up. I keep dividing the plants, trying to get them to cover the slope along my path in the back yard. It grows along the ground, quickly spreading by runners, and soon creates a thick carpet of foliage that's really pretty with it's purple spikes and dark purplish leaves. Ajuga is a great plant because it will grow in full shade or full sun - how many plants do you know that do well in either sun or shade and tolerate drought? And it's an excellent plant to use for erosion control due to it's extensive root system. Can't beat it. / i go through books rather quickly. i'm already on my fourth one since spring break and i'm almost finished with it! if anyone has some suggestions of either classics i should read before i die or modern books that they think i would like to check out, they would be greatly appreciated!
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
