RE: Progress on the garden wall

Theresa: Oh, could you let me come and help plant something? anything?
:-) With about 7 inches of snow on the ground from a weekend long
snowstorm, it now feels like a proper midwest winter here...but it has
also gotten darned cold...temps. in the single digits with winds 10-20
mph thereby dropping the windchill down into below zero temps...brrr!!!!
Probability for more snow later in the week, but just a little. Your
pictures were great...it is always so wonderful to see what people on
this list are working on in their own gardens. My husband and I have
long been talking about putting in a retaining wall along our front
sidewalk and this spring will probably be our year to do this
project...won't be as extensive a job as yours and the wall will most
likely be lower but you've provided some great inspiration, so thanks a

Subject: RE: [CHAT] Progress on the garden wall

Ok- I'm glad it isn't snowing here ( although I would like it to
snow<br>occassionally). Since we've been doing 2 major projects at once
(garden<br>wall and wood laminate flooring), the wall has taken more
time that I<br>planned. It didn't help that both my husband and I were
sick the end of Nov,<br>I was in TX for a week and then sick again when
I got home. But... water<br>under the bridge- It is going to be sunny
again today and I'm going to plant<br>some plants ( and move others). I
need to move a couple roses out front-<br>they are too shaded from a
tree in the back yard now. My Mr. Lincoln rose<br>keeps stretching for
sunlight!!! Also, I have a couple of salvia varieties<br>that need to
move too, and a "sticky monkey flower" (can't recall it's real<br>name),
and a foam flower, that just wants a better home (away from the
bird<br>feeder). I've got a good idea that I'm going to plant alot and
move<br>somethings, but one stuff starts to fill in, I'll be rearranging
things<br>again. That and I'm guessing about sunlight levels, since
there are minimal<br>leaves on the trees and the sun is at a totally
different angle now than in<br>the summer.<br>Time to go put on lots of
clothes and start planning to plant.<br><br>Theresa<br><br>-----Original

Awesome job on the wall. I just love it! You two have done a great<br>>
job. When spring rolls around, you can sit back and admire all your
hard<br>> work! Truly...artwork.<br>><br>><br>><br>> >From: Theresa
