Finally ~ the black lagoon (my rubbermaid tub sunk at the bottom of the hill for the goldfish) and the waterfall are back up and running. I still have a bit more rock placements to make ... but with some hard sweating and earth shaking movements it's getting there.
The waterfall is running ... the mulch has been moved (some of it anyways) ... the ferns and hostas are coming up ... yes ... a big sigh of relief ... it's getting there and things are looking better :) A big thank you too ~ to my lil' bro' Eric ~ for helping me one evening with the waterfalls and helping me turn the soil in the flower bed. Ladies ... sometimes it's just great to have a helping hand from a man when it comes to moving dirt and tossing those rocks around!
Things are still showing up in the garden alongside the garage ~ build them a home and you'll get some gnomes ...
My mom surprised me with these little guys. Thanks Mom!
I'll save my hypertufa pot making for another post. I think I bored you enough for today :)
Had my annual checkup with the heart doctor ~ all is well. He said I need to get more exercise. I felt like grabbing his tie and choking him and telling him to "bite me" as I kicked him in the shins; but I didn't. He said I needed to join the gym. I told him I have a gym ... it's called my home. I know how to work up a sweat and have something to show for it. In my case, it's my flower beds and my veggie garden ... when my body wants to kick in and show the results of my sweat equity ~ bonus! But in the meantime ... Join a gym. I don't have the time.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
