Oh my goodness, this is just beautiful. Looks like a lot of hard work. I am looking forward to more pictures of it.

I know this is my second comment, but my dad showed me a beautiful flower that hummingbirds love and it comes back every year. It is called lantana. I am not sure of my spelling. You might want to look it up.

Oh Darla, what a nice addition to under your tree. That is going to take a lot of dirt to fill up but it will surely be fun to pick the plants and watch them grow.

Darla, is the new grill a bribe? :) Poor guy looks llike he earned it though. The wall looks great. A new bed-what fun!

Thanks guys. I can't wait to start on it. I have Lantana Valerie, it comes in alot of colors, thanks for thinking of me though. No the grill wasn't a bribe, good idea though. Then we dropped the dang grill on my big toe!! I'm fine now.

Jean said...

Wow! That's alot of work but what a super shade garden you will have! I have several shade favorites. Ferns,hosta and bleeding heart are a few. Can't wait to see what you do with it! Jean

Great-looking wall. Love it. Sorry you guys dropped the grill on your toe--that had to hurt! You will enjoy grilling out and looking at your lovely flowers in the flower bed and that will be great!

Thanks for stopping by! Glad you got to see the soybeans in the photos....the fields are everywhere around here, as well as cotton, corn and peanuts!

Gosh that is a lot of work. The end will probably be worth the effort though.

We had the tail end of Hurricane Ike here all day. I lost my cherry tree and a lot of limbs. The neighbors lost three trees and they fell on a power line and that weight broke the power pole. Not a good day here in SW Ohio.

Mine are on Canon Pixels

Looks great! My back is hurting thinking about all the work that went into this!

Luiz Ramos said...

Wow, that looks great! Laying bricks is no joke. I did my patio all by myself with 12" bricks. I'm feeling his tiredness in that pic. :-)
