The 20 Year Plan


It's finally dry enough to work in the yard.  I've always joked that it 
was on the 20 year plane to get it finished.  This summer will be 22.
My other inspiration is the fact, that I volunteered to host the,
"It's not a garden club, garden club" at the end of the moth.
"" Because I'm into self masochism !""
( "enjoyment of hardship", not the other meaning! )


The yards not terrible, nothing a good cleaning can't fix, but there's a
 lot of bare spots.  The biggest problem is no dirt.  My yard is rocks,
roots and two Australian Sheppard's".


This bare spot is were I parked the quad last summer, with a full thank
 of Round-up.  Guess what happens when the temperature hit 100 ?
Hoses blow off and cussing starts.  


I thought it would be fun to take pictures of the progress, 
flowerbed by flowerbed.


Field trips to the nurseries for the new plants and
 then show you how the flowerbeds are taking shape.


 So, come hangout with me in the garden and lets go play in the dirt !
