Well, it's been another couple of busy days. The landscapers are coming out Sat. to start the excavation process so I wanted to salvage as much of the stone in the back yard as I could. Because of the high mineral content of the soil, the stones eventually break down and have to be 'refreshed'. So, wanting to save a little money, I've been shoveling up buckets of stones and hauling them to the front and top dressing what I have out there. It looks real nice, but heavy work. I'm doing most of it in the mornings when it's nice and cool. We are still getting up to near 90 in the afternoon. Very pleasant to sit on the patio, but a little warm to do strenuous stuff. I've also filled 7 buckets with stones and have them in the garage. I'm thinking of having the 3 large Rosemary bushes in the front yard torn out next spring and would need those to fill in the area around the new plants.
And here's a few pics i took coming home yesterday...
Well that's about it for now.
