A full days work…

Well we started planting the hillside. The temperature dropped into the 70’s so we can get some work done. You might remember we had the back of the {{popup barnwork.gif barnwork 547×122}}barn dug out. We put in 3 Crape Myrtle trees, a grass and planted the berm with lilies. I still have 1 more grass to move, 3 spireas and a new tree but ran out of steam. We rented an {{popup tool.gif tool 323×400}}auger to help with the holes because the soil has a lot of clay and it was no help at all- back to the shovel. We also moved some plants around the front {{popup sitarea.gif sitarea 550×207}}sit area. Look how little the plants were when we moved in. This area didn’t even exist. We added a knockout rose today (moved grass to back hill). This is the area where the “Peace Pole” will go. Have to order it soon. More digging. I know this should keep you in shape but it tires me out!
