My Fortune Cookie...

Doesn't this just say it all?


Saturday was freezing and Sunday was an awesome Spring day!!

So I decided it was time to tackle my perennial bed.
Looking pretty ratty lately!



Before....

Since going to Yellowstone National Park, I have been wanting to add rock pillars to my backyard.

 I wasn't sure how I was going to go about it and was not looking forward to picking the rocks needs to complete this job.



After


But it actually went alot better and was easier than I thought it would be!! I used gridded wire and made round 'cages' which I put over my existing posts. I started filling with grapefruit size rocks and incorporated the rails as I layered. I need to find some flat rocks for my caps on each pillar now!
Not bad if I don't day so myself!!

I thought it was a good day to service the quad. Some one else didn't think so.....

Working on the quad

I have the seat removed so she is sleeping on the battery(that can't be comfortable) just waiting ....


Working on the Baler

I have a pretty patient dog...she is always in the background waiting!!

And on a final note ... my 'garden' is growing!! Don't look too closely at the stitches. My mom and I are doing the same project and her comment last night was that this is not as easy as it looks to get a good product!!
Practice... practice!!




Super sunny skies and warm days!!

  3. I like your backyard pillars. How are they made, what's the procedure? It looks real nice, can hardly wait to see what else is going in?

    1. I pounded a post in and then made a cage of chicken wire about 30" and put over the post and filled with rocks evenly up the post. Pretty simple!!
