Transplanting Lambs


Lamb’s ear, that is! Which also could sound disgusting, huh? Lamb’s ear, THE PLANT.

Though this kind of lamb’s ear is pretty cute.

Okay, back to lamb’s ear, THE PLANT.

I’ve got this lamb’s ear growing out of rock at the edge of the “grassy knoll” that will soon be covered up with the expanded studio deck. Turns out, there’s not much growing on this grassy knoll but grass and weeds, and since it’s an inconvenient area–and also because I need to do some deck expansion to allow for more room (and including a handicap-access ramp), I’m getting rid of the problem by covering it up with decking. I like the lamb’s ear, though, so I moved it to the stone-lined garden bed (which will remain).

It’s looking a little gimpy right now, but I think it’ll make it!

    There are four sets of double glass doors in the studio, so that is enough, LOL.

    Do you know some people think the bloom on lamb’s ear smells like Hubbab Bubba bubblegum – what do you think? Also, if you cut them back about halfway they’ll put energy into growing new roots instead of recovering the blooms.

    They might look a little gimpy, but they’ll make it and the best part is they’re low maintenance, not to mention how wonderfully soft they are(like a lamb’s ear);)

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
