I scattered Preen weed killer / fertilizer all throughout the garden, forgetting to avoid the six year-old bugleweed and creeping Jenny I cultivated so it spills artfully over the wall and softens the transition from the rocks to the lirope.
So now all that is dead. I could replant it, or I could see if any if it resurrects. Or I could left the lirope grow up to the edge. Or I could dig everything up, or start from scratch.
I do need to thin out the flowering thyme. I could start with that and then see where to go.
