Halfway Done- Left Flowerbed and Mini Island




Low End - Notice 3-Tiers Needed Both Sections




Right Flowerbed Completed

(Note- last plant is Pride of Barbados that finally just started to thrive.)




Right Flowerbed Overview





Eva the Diva Snoop Keeping Watch (Mon)




Next to do are walkway islands, R & L of center entry walk from street. These will both require stepped tiers as there is about a foot drop in grade from back of island to front where it joins walkway.

Last section to do is the right tree island (just behind Eva in picture) which will also be hard, since grade here has a lot of hills and valleys around trees.
Good job on the retaining blocks , you made the base level!

A magic carpet for the Dobe thats one way to get those squirrels!

Well done Daddio!

My Dad has some landscaping competition.

Did you encounter any snakes along the way?

You are getting warm when it comes to what Kenny is up to , i can hear him cussing all the way down south...sometimes when you wear so many different hats it gets tough to make them fit (not) quite right!

I've blamed everything on you from the get go.

So what's your point?

A gardener friend of my grandmothers told me when I thought helping her plant her flower beds in the late spring was a big deal, told me that if you are planting a bed of something like a lot of pansies with basic dark colors (purple, blue, bright red, orange--to make sure you have several very plain white ones in there too--she said that it makes the dark or bright colors really stand out with that kind of contrast it make everything look better. Sometimes I can hear Miss Monica whispering in my ear--"Tell her yes, you do want the plain white ones--but don't tell her our secret".

Anyway--those are pretty spectacular.

Just a little whisper in the ear Aunt B, AJ will ship you some for free!

Sorry Chicken Hawks, but would some more experienced members, please kindly explain to Beau...as I am a little naive, much to Papa's apparent innocence / and stumped for a viable answer.

- what are examples of "non-TV activities", in a Bed Room setting, besides reading or sleeping ???

- asking for a Friend

While browsing for that pic, came across this excellent Meme that expresses Mel's sentiment toward Kenny, if he calls at 0500 as a "courtesy" wake-up call, as threatened in CoronaVirus thread...

Now wait just a minute.

Are you cross polinating threads?
