Carly, I *hate* this ditch, but it's there to serve a purpose. I can't fill it in.
I'd love to rip it all out, fill it in with good stuff, and plant
lovely things in it.. but I don't think the township would approve..lol. The drainage ditch around my house is part of a whole series of them around the circle I'm in, and I swear, mine is about the deepest one of all! And when it rains fast & hard, it floods, sometimes up into the edge of the yard, over the sidewalk, and will cover the road as well.
We weedwack the ditch, but it grows faster than we can hack it down! (And sometimes, I don't like to wack them all down.. we get *some* pretty flowers
in it!) I'll be taking photos of those, for sure! Also, I took my can of wildflower seeds
, and sprinkled some thru the ditch, so hopefully, we'll get more flowers
out of it..lol.
