Oh my BADness I must give you an update before I go much further.
This is what the dog run looked like on Monday morning
This is what it looks like today!
As you can see there is one post left! That’s a heavy sucker and Mr. Stodgy said he would help me with it on Saturday. See that washtub there . . . the steel one. That was buried under my parents’ house when we sold it. It was made to hold ice so they could ice down beverages. It has a drain at one end that can be opened and the water would come out. Okay now the drain plug is rusted so it drips all the time now. The ground was so hard on Monday that I would fill the tub with water and drag it to where I needed the water to drip to soften the soil. It worked great and I was able to get the first two posts out with no problem at all. Then yesterday stormed and we had some much needed rain. Thank goodness, but the last posts were sitting in mucky mud. I removed the one closest to the shed this morning. Too hot and humid though and I needed to come in to cool off and rest. I was able to get tons of work done on Monday and then yesterday it rained! The rain was a blessing . . . . I want more!
So yesterday morning I was sitting in my recliner having my morning coffee and smoke, and the phone rings. It was none other than . He called to tell me to run up to Meijers and take some pictures and get prices on things I liked. So Mallory and I went up after the rain, found a few things and showed when he came in from work.
This is what we bought last night . . . Golden Euonymus.
They will be planted along this fence on the side.
The shrubs you see behind the newly purchased items are some of our favorites. It is included in the Master Plan to buy more of those to plant along the back fence line.
Now the search is on for some type of flowering bush to plant by the deck. The magnolias I wanted last night didn’t seem to make it home with us. I’m also on the search for a rain barrel. I have this need for an old time rain barrel. I remember the ones at the aunts farms when I was small and . . . well, i just NEED one to put by the broken drain at the shed.
That’s all I have so far! I’m sure there will be more stories to tell and pictures to share . . . . we might be in for a saga of sorts!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Remember life is short . . . do as you damn well please and enjoy the adventure!
Oh also notice that I’ve added a new category . . . The Master Plan . . . so you can keep up with the saga!
