Gifts from the compost heap

We spent a few hours working to put the garden to bed this week, but a nice surprise from the compost heap has kept things looking spring-y for a while longer. When we raked Rock Garden Hill this spring, we filled the wheelbarrow with the debris and tossed it in our garden compost heap behind the garden shed. When we went to dump some of the pots the frost killed, we discovered a lush variety of sedum growing on the compost heap. I dug some of it up and popped it in the bare spots in our remaining pots. So now our deck doesn't look quite so naked. Who knows, maybe next spring, instead of a trip to our favorite nurseries, we'll go "shopping" at the compost heap.
