    Patios, walkways, stone, brick, Aurora, Geneva

    A newer product intro from Uni-lock, and I like it!
    Have dealt with and seen many a faux stone product over the years, and not been so impressed with the final results.  This product comes the closest.


  2. Whats in bloom: Native Downy Sunflower (Helianthus moll.)

    August 27, 2013 by MAX

    This late season prairie plant has downy grey-green foliage, and tends to colonize over time. Bloom time is late summer, and is a major draw for pollinators. A good plant all around, esp. in the back of the garden, or in the natural landscapes as seen here in West Chicago, Il.
