Monday Monday

Saw the new Johnny Depp pirate movie yesterday with the young lady I tutor for reading.  It was her first time experiencing 3D and she was quite impressed.  We managed to get home before the storm that hit our area with our very first small tornado.  Supposedly where three rivers come together this never happens, but it appears Mother Nature decided to make an exception to the rule.

The backyard project is almost complete...the railroad ties have been removed and the retaining wall blocks are in place.  The gently curving lines are much nicer than the hard straight lines and sharp edges.  

It will look great when the vines start growing and all the containers are in place.

There's always more to be done.

The pond area is coming back from it's clean up earlier this year.
Here's a photo of what it looked like in June 2010.  I've added some more plants to the waterfall area, but not all are up and full yet, so it helps to have these photos to remember what it could look like.

Well, short post for today.  I need to get cracking on my household chores.  More photos to come soon of the fairy gardens I've put together.

Long live the Queen of Gardens

  1. I hope all of you are okay after the storms. A tornado? Gosh, those things scare me. Your walkway and your pond area look fabulous!! Now I'm off to make some lunch for Tootsie. She's hanging in there. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
