RE: wagons and carts


Daughter Rayna is trying to buy a house with a lot like that (maybe even a
bit smaller.)  I told her she should tear out the grass and put in a
perennial garden and forget the lawn mowing.  The hours she works, mowing is
the last thing she needs.  Gardening would be much more therapeutic.  Of
course she will need a bit of "grass" for her two bulldogs--"princess" Kira
(who won't let her precious paws touch wet grass) and Steam Roller Blue!
LOL!!!

Blessings,
Bonnie

Not as much?  I don't know what my 60 ft x 125 ft is to an acre, but I'd
guess it's no more than about 1/8 of an acre.  And the house, garage,
driveway and sidewalk are on that.  What's left is my garden.
