Gardens Under Construction

Garden under construction ( photo / image / picture from gfreiherr's Garden )

On Thursday we had 3 stumps removed from the gardens.
The trees were taken down before we moved in and I have been working around them for 5 years. Two of them had bird baths over them and the third had a large planter. The ground was wet when he removed them and we have had 3 days of rain.

He could only take part of the stump in the front because of utility line.

I am still trying to decide what to plant. Even though the stumps are gone, there are still a lot of large roots. Because it has been raining I have not had a chance to really see what I am dealing with and it will be another week at least before it drys out. I also have plants I had to dig up that need to be replanted. Its been really frustrating! Will post an update after I have a chance to work the soil and get that some of the ground up stump out of the garden.

Heh heh heh--What a fancy posting, Gail.
I guess that you are glad to get those stumps out; it looks like you will have some nice beds to plant some colourful plants or even bushes.

You can just bet that I shall be eagerly awaiting your next update foto show.

Congrats on all the hard work.

Just heard the weather forecast 3 more days of rain! On the bright side sunny and 60 on Friday. Guess I will check out the gardens centers for ideas. :~)

I'll bet you'll plant something beautiful, judging by your past photos I've seen. It can be frustrating to want to get out and do the work, but needing to wait... I can relate to that!!!
