The patio stones are down and the four bags of mulch were put down and I realized I needed more, so it was back to Home Depot and this time I got 12 bags of the mulch. We already four of the new ones emptied. Still gives me eight bags to play with. I already know where one of them is going. It will go under the grape arbor. I need a thicker layer under there than what I have.
A couple of times today there was a hummingbird flitting around in the back yard. I know there are plenty around but we have not had much success in attracting them. I am praying that we will see more and more as things grow and blossom.
I thought that there was a possibility that all 5 of the Rose of Sharon shrubs were killed by the frost. They just lost their leaves and I noticed today that there are new leaves popping out on them. The same thing with the grapes. I planted a new vine not long ago and it has gotten broke off or maybe the rabbits ate the top part which had leaves, I don't know which, but am hoping that it lives and grows. The two small lilac bushes I planted at the same time are doing great!!!
Jeff told me today that after living here almost 7 years, I should just about have the yard the way I want it. I told him to dream on. This is a yard in the works and it will be for years yet to come. I know that we are both enjoying the fruits of our labors.
I thank the Lord for His insight and guidance so that I have been able to get what I have gotten done and know in my hear it is what it should be. I praise Him every time I walk out the kitchen door. It is so hard to realize that when we moved here there was not a tree, flower or anything in the back yard. There was a tree in the front. It looks so different and will continue to change as I expound on my ideas
Time to get busy again
God bless all of you
