Marla does lazy quite well!

"I live in Idaho Falls, Idaho (zone 4).  I am a somewhat lazy gardener and binge with my husband about 3 times a year with garden care. So things have to be somewhat low maintenance to survive with me. And I also dearly love trees. So plants are slowly being replaced with shade loving plants in many areas."

The crab apple tree over the driveway is wonderful in the spring with the perfume and bees.  The creeping thyme is another favorite. It loves the hot dry spot at the corner of the driveway.
