Between Friday and yesterday Chuck and I managed to tear out about 50 substantial shrubs in front of the Big House (which had been in place for ten years....with roots to match), and got about that same number of different things planted. Making great progress, but this old body hurts this morning!
Mom won't be happy that I'm not in church, but today's the morning to put up the new fence in the Stepchild Garden, finally finish the painting on the "not shed," and keep plugging away at the weeding, mulching, and general stuff. Even Frank is breaking his personal rule about not going outside...he's the tallest, so he gets to paint the peaks of the not shed. Let's just hope he doesn't see a bug, or the painting will never get done!
