We Will Rock You(r Garden)
It is now 10:45 am, Pacific Standard Time. I have consumed one cup of delicious Java-fuel and taken a detailed survey of the land. It might not be easy, it might not be pretty, but we will have a foot path by dinner time! Great physical and emotional strength are imperative to this operation... and the occasional fresh tomato.
Rocks have been set in assumed positions, ready for placement SIR! Although heavy, they offer little resistance. I assume they mean to become my friends and allies.
Heat and humidity have started taking their toll. Said elements will not foil my mission, for I am dedicated to the cause. Surrender is not an option, not even to the little canine insurgent next door that wishes to dig-up and liberate the stones. Half done and ready for more!
Well played. There were interruptive phone calls, attempted cat escapes (Rob has a screen to fix when he gets home!) and a very sore set of arms needing many breaks. Welcome home, river rocks. Welcome home!
I'm really proud of the stump. I planted some of the Ivy-Leafed Toadflax seeds around it yesterday, so I decided it was going to become a focal point. Keep in mind this is my first attempt with aesthetic garden accessories.
*These pictures were taken on my camera phone, hence the poor quality. We used about 20 batteries in the real camera this weekend and the urgency of the situation required me to make due.

Great job lexxi, I couldn't have done it. What are the awe plants in the tubs, I love those large leaves.
I like to call em' my Zukes gone wild. They've been doubling in size every few weeks since I made the mistake of fertilizing them. They're pretty, but the squash are mostly no good.
Injecting humour into the construction of a footpath is not easy but you certainly did it Lexxi. Great job.
Good job and it looks great.You worked your tush off is what you did and made it sound like fun.Thanks I had some great chuckles along the way.
ROFL!!! Hope your furry insurgents behave themselves!You have quite the oasis in the works there! Your stump would look awesome with a little birdfeeder-on-a-stick poking up from behind. On a stick to get it out of reach of the cat, of course!
I was wondering how to incorporate a birdfeeder in there! My Mom got me a little birdhouse with a Cafe' sign on front. I want to make a little cup-and-saucer feeder to go with it. Thanks for the idea, Mary. I love coffee if you haven't noticed.
Yup, the teacup-on-a-stick is what I was thinking of. Made one last year with some copper tubing to hold it up, but forgot a drain hole and had birdseed soup whenever it rained!
