    This plant has almost complexly covered the front lawn. There is almost no sign of the previous grass. I have a dislike for grass and this at first look is a fine replacement. I need the name for the product. This has appeared over the last few years from where I do not know.

    I just walked across my lawn (grass cut short) in my bare feet. It felt so soft and cool and tickly - almost like a foot massage. Maybe Creeping Charlie feels as good but I wouldn't count on it.

    Hi Durgan, my thoughts are of Lawn pennywort, Hydrocotyle sibthorpiodes.

    I applaud your choice, Durgan. You like Charlie; he clearly likes you. He thrives; you are pleased. Excellent!

    Some folks dislike blue violets that invite themselves into lawns and beds. I find them beautiful and cheering. In spring, they cover half my front lawn with a swath of color: they would be welcome to have it all!

    Today I admired my magnificent Verbascum, which has chosen to grow next to my backyard fence. In full bloom and over 6 feet tall. Lovely velvety leaves.
    A weed? Not to me.

    May you and Charlie live long and prosper!
