Strawberries Make Better Lawn Than Grass

We got $10 of bare-root strawberries from a sale this spring, and the results have been fantastic! They went in as edging to our walk but I don't see how they wouldn't be a fine replacement for the grass in the parts of the lawn where we don't habitually walk.The leaves are nice, the plants are tough and the berries are even better than you remember!
Why waste space on grass when you can grow berries like these?

Nasturtia and Crocosmia in our Parking Strip Garden

My brother @David Winnie gave us seed from his nasturtiums, and the results play well with our crocosmia!

This Workstation Has A Cat Instead Of A Mouse

My workstation in the Blue Room is a hangout for Impact Underfoot McCord. Maybe I'd be more productive without her help, but then again, maybe not.

July 28: Tuskegee Airmen Annual Scholarship Lunch

Sunday the 28th, Kris and I picked up my friend Cyril and we went to the Tuskegee Airmen Inc annual scholarship luncheon. This was sort of a "thank you" from the chair of their Scholarship Committee, Mrs. Dolores Booker, for the help we'd been with her husband, Mr. William Booker, who'd had some issues getting signed up with the VA and then navigating the system.
It was very interesting to see this organization so dedicated to educating the next generation, and the scholarship recipients were are pretty interesting kids. I'm sure we'll be hearing from some in the future!
Mrs. Booker was in her element, taking charge and leading her segment of the meeting with authority and confidence. We also saw her daughter Leslyn Pettit, and Leslyn's son (whose name I forget ... but he just graduated from college and gave a practical pep talk to the scholarship winnings). Perhaps we'll have to think about how we can work with the organization or at least network with likeminded groups in the future.
Anyway, thanks for the invitation!
