RE: now, chores of yesterday-Texas gardening (a day inthe life)

Wow - that sounds like a major undertaking you were involved in
yesterday! Those waterlilies are something else. Pat keeps talking about
getting one for her pond, but it's small and it sounds like it would
take over completely and she's not always real timely w/ her
maintenance. She's fixin' to get the "mulch" lecture again after all the
time I spent watering over there yesterday...

Like Howard Garrett says "Nature doesn't allow bare soil, neither should you!"
