Stone garden border project… day 9.

.

Viola!

.

.

The what seemed like never ending stone perennial garden border construction is complete.

.

.

Yes, it’s much smaller than I wanted.

.

.

But I’m pleased with it all the same.

.

.

It was a lot of work and the husband did a great job.

But the best part? Our marriage survived all the arguments it caused.

Next up? Dirt and flowers!

.

P.S….. I wrote this a few weeks ago. The lawn is actually the crunchy brown from yesterday’s post.

      1. Are you planting any bulbs in this garden? Now would be the time for designing what plants you want where. Maybe arrange a particular flower in the shape of a “Thanks, Honey” for him to enjoy.

      2. Yeah, that’s not happening. 😆
        I’ve never had much luck with bulbs here. Too many hungry winter nibblers. I’ve planted tulips, gladioli, daffodils, hyacinths etc…. to no avail. Nothing comes up.

  1. I know it’s smaller than you wanted but it is still a good size. It looked fabulous. I am like you, I live on a well and don’t usually water my gardens; but you may have to carry a few watering cans to devote to the new flowers in this one in the beginning.

  2. Dirt? You gonna take all that stuff you sweep under your rugs and put it in that lovely garden????

    How ’bout you put some SOIL in there? I think your new plants would love it more.

    (My horticulture teacher would be SO proud of me.)

  3. I wondered about the condition of the grass. So now we find out the truth, our readings are time-delayed. It was better when we thought this was an up-to-date report. Two weeks ago, huh? Calming down before you could write nicely?

      1. You must have quite the line-up. I only post when something pisses me off or one of my horses does something (and that is a new topic I omly added this year).

      2. Holy effin’ hell! You are one proliferant blogger! Why not collect them into a book of humour? If you chose wisely I think you might have a best-seller on your hand. “Blogging From the Funny Side”

      3. There I think you are wrong. Humour books can be quite successrul, and I think you are good enough to find a following. i just don’t know what publishers do humour. Maybe Dave Barry can help you out there.

  4. I know you are having a terrible drought up there. I can only speak for our situation a few years back, when we thought the lawn and plants would be lost for eternity. Yet, everything bounced back the next year with some TLC. At least the project is done!

  5. The project looks fantastic, and I’m SO happy that your marriage is still intact.
    We’ve built two houses and went through two major renovations, and I’ve said: Never again because this, if anything, could take us down as a couple. Stressful.
    Praying you get some rain soon!!
