A Martha Stewart Moment

My parents' new blue Salvia needed a little help getting through a heat wave this summer. So I harvested some dead leaves from this palm-tree thing growing in their yard and wove a shade mat for it. The idea was to shade the ground, helping conserve moisture on this South-facing bank above a concrete retaining wall. But best of all, it's 100% biodegradable.

Family members advised me to sell these.

I think they were teasing.
