Landscaping update!

Here I am after finishing the flagstone patio.  My wife caught me looking off into nowhere. HAHAHA

Here I am after finishing the flagstone patio. My wife caught me looking off into nowhere. HAHAHA

Although I have not been posting about my landscaping lately, I have been doing a lot of it.  Since my last posts, I have finished a very long stepping stone path with flagstone.  This in a sense is my little nature trail in  my back yard.  I have also finished a small seating area that is situated so that anyone sitting there can reflect and look at the cross sculpture.

Even more exciting is the fact that I have now planted lots of stuff.  I have planted 6 rainbow drooping leucothes, 5 evergreen huckleberries, 3 Rhody’s, transplanted two flowering red currents, and transplanted about 30 sword ferns.  Things are really coming together and the plan is beginning to take shape.  Oh yeah, I have also added some more “accent” boulders to various areas.  I have also recieved the foundation planting shrubs and am putting those in hopefully tonight before I pack for my race.

Pictures will be coming soon.

      I have not started building the actual cross yet. I just built the area that it is going. Pretty soon though. This summer.

    Just wanted to wish you a safe trip and much success in your marathlon. I am sure you’ll do well and hopefully the weather will cooperate as well. Have fun and enjoy the after barbecue. It all sounds like a lot of fun. Take care and looking forward to seeing how well you do.

    How was your back feeling in that picture? Looks like your holding your back.
    Everything sounds beautiful. I hope that someday I can come and see it in person.

    Take care, Melissa

    Nice! I am creating a giant vegetable garden in my backyard this year. Doing some square foot gardening, which will hopefully elicit lots of great food! If the squirrels don’t get to it first.
