RE: Progress on the garden wall

Theresa: Thanks! We in the upper midwest, snowed in and freezing to
death, need some green!!! I love seeing the pictures of stuff growing
elsewhere...it does help! I think this is one reason I spend so much
time in winter looking at gardening mags/books...it makes spring seem a
little closer. :-)

You are welcome to come "play in the dirt" (as my husband
affectionately<br>says) anytime! I still have a tray of plant to get in
the ground and about<br>10 i need to move/rearrange! It is supposed to
rain here again for the next<br>3 days. I'm hoping for sun this weekend
so that I can get some more wall<br>building completed. I'll take
another picture tomorrow, so you can see all<br>the little green plants
in the ground : ) Hopefully this will help tide you<br>over until spring
at your house!<br><br>Theresa<br><br>-----Original Message-----<br>From:

something? anything?<br>:-) With about 7 inches of snow on the ground
from a weekend long<br>snowstorm, it now feels like a proper midwest
winter here...but it has<br>also gotten darned cold...temps. in the
single digits with winds 10-20<br>mph thereby dropping the windchill
down into below zero temps...brrr!!!!<br>Probability for more snow later
in the week, but just a little. Your<br>pictures were great...it is
always so wonderful to see what people on<br>this list are working on in
their own gardens. My husband and I have<br>long been talking about
putting in a retaining wall along our front<br>sidewalk and this spring
will probably be our year to do this<br>project...won't be as extensive
a job as yours and the wall will most<br>likely be lower but you've
provided some great inspiration, so thanks
a<br>bunch!<br><br><br><br>Melody, IA (Z 5/4)<br><br>"The most beautiful

RE: [CHAT] Progress on the garden wall<br><br>Ok- I'm glad it isn't
snowing h

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