My Life is really in the Garden

Well, I was all excited and was writing away when suddenly I somehow hit a combination of keys and lost my train of thought!  choo choo train.

Anyway, I was rhapsodizing on the end of the 4 month session of yard transformation that my DH have been working on since February.

Days, weeks, months of fixing up our rental .. the house was fine but the yard was a jungle.  So we rolled up our sleeves, began the daunting task of transformation.  And now the hard work has paid off and honestly, the yard looks like House and Garden.   Grass is growing, tall perennials (cedars, myrtles, Pyracantha’s, plus a myriad of other plants).

DH has constructed a lovely sidewalk, a retaining wall, edged with white fencing and  cement stairs that lead to the grassy area.  It’s a paradise of relaxation.  I’ll post some pics.

But as everyone who has ever done this sort of thing knows full well, it doesn’t happen easily. Lots of  hard physical work, we fetched trailer after trailer of sand, navvy jack, cement, wood, you name it.  Every day we were working hard, digging, shovelling, painting.

And as of today … just a few more things to do .. and we are done, fini …

So I will have the time now to work in our own garden (oh, wow, there is so much garlic, you wouldn’t believe!) and I can post pics of potatoes that I’m growing in sacks.

So much to share and I’m looking forward to the extreme pleasure of sitting at my computer and just “talking” away!  I’ll even bring my laptop outside.  This year I purchased a new one, by golly!  So my $85 HP can take a little rest.

I have magnificent photos of skies … to share.

Anyway, must go .. finishing details and all that .. and tomorrow I’ll start blogging.

Oh, one more thing .. my pal D and I were in the May 25, Victoria, BC March against Monsanto!!!    I took a few hours away from the work at our rental to participate in this momentous activity.  Lots of people there .. and the Blue Man from Avatar was there also ..took some pics of him.

🙂  happy days to all ….
