RE: Exceptional Weather Comes to an End

Thanks Kitty-  I just keep doing one section at a time-  I've got one more
section of grass to cut out to make room for the wall bricks, then I need to
lay the sand bed level..  Unfortunately I know this last section in going to
involve chopping out tree roots- I saved the worst part for last.  I'm
hoping for good weather next Mon/Tues and that the rock place can deliver
the 2 pallets of bricks early Monday, so that I can finish before I have to
go back to work on Wed.  I may be immobile at that point- I'm not as young
as I used to be either.   I have learned in the last year that I'm not
indestructible after all!


I should take a picture of the before (well actually- in progress) and then
an after shot later.

It's obvious you're younger than I am :+)

Your project for the corner hill sounds labor-intensive but well worth
the effort. Not just reducing difficult mowing, but creating a great
focal point and good use of an awkward area.
