Maximizing my time.
This week I am back to my normal work week leaving me with two days off.
I was finally able to fix the fire pit and plant the new garden.
This is the path to the fire pit.
It was originally red sand left over from a pool installation.
I hated the sand, it stained everything.
Today we will finish the far right corner and put the chairs back.
As for the kids having a place to play in the sand.
I think I have talked Mr. M. into building a sand box, seeing as that tree house has still not been built.
I washed the stones last night.
They look and feel like the pebbles from Olcott Beach.
I am glad I choose to go with the larger stone.
The left side of the garden was just planted last year.
Each year I will add a few plants until it looks like a full lush English garden.
No room for weeds.
This is the start of the new garden.
I have two flowering ornamental pear trees.
A Thuja Green Giant tree.
Two Limelight hydrangea bushes.
Several blue berry bushes. That the birds have already discovered.
A Catmint plant.
Some creeping phlox.
A pink rose bush.
One of my ROCKS.
I left plenty of room to add 6 of my arborvitae bushes that are in planters for the summer.
After two years of being in planters they are a nice size for my gardens.
Next year I will go with boxwood bushes in my planters.
I took these pictures in the morning so I wouldn't have the blaring sun, only problem, fog.
At least my garden is planted and I can enjoy our 4th of July party/birthday party.
Thanks for stopping by.
I hope everyone has a wonderful July 4th.
