Upcoming excitement

Are the rest of you excited about the upcoming May Garden Bloggers Bloom Day? The gardens in Napa are crazy right now and a few more folks in my neighborhood are taking out their lawns. Generally speaking, on this side of town lawns still tend to rule, but change is on the wind. I've been walking the neighborhood snapping photos with my cell phone of gardens that are moving more toward native & drought-tolerant. Some people are even planting edible landscapes. I've started giving away plants I've propagated to people who stop to chat while I'm gardening.
It's time for me get a real camera.
Folks, I'm lovin' this.

What do you recommend for a fast growing ground cover to take the place of out of control periwinkle?

I know what you mean. My garden was full of beautiful roses and misc., including the plants you gave me. I have reconfigured my yard somewhat and it is really shaping up. I hope you will be able to stop by sometime soon. My Dad had his wife pick up a Grandpa's Weeder for their place. What a great tool!
