Well, I am pleased to show you that now it looks like this!

I finished getting all that grass out of there a couple weeks ago, and Dan was kind enough to haul it away while I was in Palm Springs. Today we got a couple yards of garden soil and added that on. The plan is to put in a path next to the garage, which is why there is no garden soil there. Also, we ran out and need more. 
Our fun activity for tonight is to go to Home Depot and price out those big paving/garden path things. Plants still to come. The roses I got for free (which really was the catalyst in starting this project) are starting to bud & bloom, which is fun to see! All 13 of them will go in this bed somewhere! I know we are awesome. 

It's been a work-y kind of day around here. In addition to the above, I finally put some mulch under our Maple tree:

And edged around some existing beds: 

In the kitchen, pizza dough is doughing in the bread maker, blueberry platz for church potluck is platzing, and eggs are devilling. 

All in all, good day.  How about you?

The only down side is that my stinkin' washing machine still isn't fixed!


  1. Good yard workin'! How did you get 13 rose bushes for free? That will be quite stunning, I must say!

  2. Oh, and good job doughing, platzing, and deviling!

  3. Looks like you are having too much fun outside.

    You've worked hard! Your efforts will soon pay off with beautiful flowers to look at. What's up with your washing machine?
