mission: brown thumb

I really need to learn to take before pictures. I began phase 2 of the backyard plan last weekend. Phase 1 happened a few years ago – clear the overgrown weeds out of the flower beds. I’ve been out of the country the last 2 springs, so phase 2 was put on hold. This weekend, however, it was put into motion. Tons of thanks to Jim, Allen, Rob & Heather for their help. I couldn’t have done it without you guys! We got the flower beds roto-tilled and edged with new timbers. It looks great. Now I have to buy a bunch of plants. I’ve been meaning to take "after" pictures, but it hasn’t happened and now it's raining so I’ll just tell you about it so you don’t think I’ve fallen off the planet.
