Busy day

















We had a very productive day yesterday in our yard. Tracie and I weeded the entire yard. (and it really needed it. How do weeds grow so fast but all the good plants don't?) Then we rented a roto tiller (not sure that is spelled correctly) and got the garden ready for planting. Jon Long let us use his truck to transport the tiller and even did the driving and helped load and unload. So to pay him back we washed his truck. And since we were already washing we washed my car and Tracie's car (Darren's car wasn't around so his didn't get done). That afternoon Jon came back again with his truck and Darren and Jon pulled up the juniper bushes in the front of our house. That was a lot of work. Those things are tough. We still have a lot to do but I think we crammed enough into one day. Now we have to decide what to do in place of the juniper bushes. Anyone got some good ideas?

So, you finally got rid of the Junipers in front. I'll bet that looks different. Pat and I planted 150 Petunias on Saturday. I was tired. I told Pat "I hate Petunia Day."
I think we ought to build up a flower bed with blocks and plant some fun stuff.

That's what Darren wants to do - build up a flower bed. Do you have any ideas for an inexpensive way to do it?

We have a ton of landscape bricks (you know, the retaining wall bricks?) that you could buy off us... that is, unless Dad wants them.

Susan...what a woman. I'm very impressed. I would love to help you if I could. Show me some pictures of the front of the house so I can see your improvements. Keep up the planting. Love, Kim

I thought you had decided to keep the bushes for a while! Now your yard will look bare with the tree all trimmed up and the juniper bushes gone. I agree, we need to see a front of the house picture.

I like my clean truck.

Thanks again for washing my truck.

Are those tapered pants, Darren?
