Adventures in Decorating: Pergola is up

It’s funny how one ten foot tall structure can change the feel of an entire house and yard. I wish we’d completed this years ago when I first wanted it. In a few months we will have it stained the same color as the fascia boards. Next up is Fleur de Lis hooks on the posts for wreaths! Cannot wait to enjoy this for many years to come. Mr. Landscape did a great job! Chris Rafert is a great guy with a wonderful crew.

Adventures in Gardening: Why I rarely get a manicure

Yes. I have gloves. This is why I can’t have nice nails. It’s worth it though. All the plants are in, all the mulch is down and all the turtles are placed.
